SDG 4 Education 2030

“Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all” 

The global education agenda (Education 2030) is part of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), that make up the Agenda 2030 for sustainable development.

The Global Goals and targets aim to stimulate action over the next fifteen years in the Five Ps of critical importance: People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace and Partnership.  

The success of these goals is driven by the education goal. The SDGs reflect the important role of education by encapsulating targets in a stand-alone goal (Goal 4).

Education is also included in goals on health, growth and employment, sustainable consumption and production, and climate change. The Incheon Declaration, which constitutes the commitment of the education community to Education 2030, entrusts UNESCO to lead, coordinate and be the focal point for education within the overall SDG coordination.

The Education 2030 Framework for Action outlines how to translate into practice the commitments made at Incheon at country, regional and global level and provides guidance for implementing Education 2030.
