67 million children worldwide aren't in school, according to the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). Making primary education accessible to all is one of the main issues that will be discussed at a high-level meeting which begins in Geneva, Switzerland on Monday.

Eleven countries from Bangladesh and Malawi to Belarus and Venezuela will give presentations on how to make education work.

The current state of the global economy will also be on the agenda.

Radmilla Suleymanova spoke to ECOSOC Director, Nikhil Seth, about what he hopes will come out of the conference.
