In May 2015, 1,600 people from 160 countries participated in the World Education Forum in Korea to develop plans to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and lifelong learning for all by 2030. The result is a 55-page Report that has three primary messages:
- Urgent need for new approaches to providing education, addressing political will, policies, innovation and resources.
- In order to address SDG 4 (Education) to be achieved, there is heightened urgency, as failure to achieve this Goal will hamper the success of many of the other Sustainable Development Goals such as poverty reduction, hunger eradication, improved health, gender equality and women’s empowerment, sustainable production and consumption, resilient cities, and more equal and inclusive societies.
- There is a need to fundamentally change the way we think about education and its role in human well-being and global development.
