We were shocked and deeply saddened to learn of Agnes’ death. In her we have lost one of the most devoted and longest-serving supporters of our Network, which she helped to set up and then guided first as a representative of UNSA Education and subsequently of Education International.
As an Executive Board member and treasurer of our organisation, she played a key role in developing our actions. She was always able to mobilise her many contacts in the world of education trade unionism of which she was one of the most visible international representatives.
A colleague and friend, she embodied our central value of solidarity and the commitment which sustains our venture. She remained very close to us until the end.
The Network is deeply indebted to Agnes. It is now our duty to ensure that the vision that she shared with us becomes a reality true to the hopes she placed in our action and projects. This will be our way of paying tribute to her!
We would like to offer our sincere condolences to Agnes’ family and those to whom she was close.
On behalf of the Education and Solidarity Network
President Jean-Philippe Huchet and the Executive Board
