Malala Yousafzai has used a speech in Birmingham to urge people to spread the message of “education for all”.
She was speaking to 200 delegates at the International Conference on Women in Physics at the University of Birmingham.
The United Nations’ Messenger for Peace also told the audience about her work to ensure opportunities exist in developing countries for young women to enter education.
“I have just one ask of people attending this international conference, which is that delegates spread the message of education for all, and inspire others to do the same,” she said.
“Advocating education brings change and that change brings hope and opportunity to young women around the world.”
The conference saw visitors from 60 countries visit the city.
