UNESCO tracks global progress on education for sustainable development and global citizenship

© Chinnapong

UNESCO is sharing information and data on global, regional and national trends in education for sustainable development (ESD) and global citizenship education (GCE) through a new dedicated webpage titled “Learning to live together sustainably (SDG4.7): Trends and Progress”.

The page provides policy-makers, concerned education stakeholders and the general public with information that can help monitor global progress on the Education 2030 Agenda Target 4.7 which relates to the knowledge and skills required for sustainable development and global citizenship.

It will feature information drawn from regional, multi-country or national data sets and other established instruments and will also include key findings of UNESCO studies and data analyses.

What is Target 4.7 of the Education 2030 Agenda?

Target 4.7 states that countries aim to ensure by 2030 that all learners acquire the knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, including, among others, through education for sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of peace and non-violence, global citizenship education and appreciation of the diversity of culture and its contribution to sustainable development.

What is the global indicator established to measure progress on Target 4.7?

The indicator seeks to measure the extent to which GCED and ESD, including gender equality and human rights, are mainstreamed in national education policies, curricula, teacher education and student assessments.

We invite you to share and follow the Learning to live together sustainably (SDG4.7): Trends and Progress web page.

If your organization is producing data that can help monitor Target 4.7, please let us know by writing to the email gced(at)unesco.org. We will be posting information from partner institutions.
