2019–20 coronavirus pandemic has affected educational systems worldwide, leading to the near-total closures of schools, universities, and colleges. As of 27 April 2020, approximately 1.725 billion learners are currently affected due to school closures in response to the pandemic. According to UNICEF monitoring, 186 countries are currently implementing nationwide closures and 8 are implementing local closures, impacting about 98.5 percent of the world's student population. Alike many countries in the world, To stem the spread of COVID-19 through non-pharmaceutical interventions and preventive measures such as social-distancing and self-isolation, India also followed the path of Lockdown leading to the closure of primary, secondary, and tertiary schooling, cancellation of exams, deferring admission entrance, etc. As the days pass by with no immediate solution to stop the outbreak of Covid-19, school and university closures will not only have a short-term impact on the continuity of learning for more than 285 million young learners in India but also engender far-reaching economic and societal consequences.
Recognizing these imperatives, under Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), an initiative of United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), GCNI is organizing Manthan 2020 on the theme "Responsible Management Education in a Post COVID World: Emerging Innovative Practices in Management Schools" a unique competition to understand the COVID -19 impact on the education sector with UNESCO as Strategic Partner & KPMG as Knowledge Partner. As a multi-lateral partner of UNESCO Global Education Coalition, PRME aims to build more resilient education systems for the future.
