UNESCO encourages the design of effective science and technology education programmes by promoting gender-sensitive, socio-culturally and environmentally relevant policies and curricula. 

It promotes a multidisciplinary approach to science and technology education and gives particular attention to the provision of basic knowledge, life skills and scientific literacy for all, as well as preparation for the world of work. 

In a rapidly-evolving world, science and technology education is an important instrument in the search for sustainable development and poverty reduction. Yet educational systems are faced with the challenge of science and technology education that has lost relevance not being able to adapt to current scientific and technological developments.
