Education's impact on the Global Goals

Infographic of the week

Today, UN leaders will commit to achieving 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development. Building on the progress of the Millennium Development Goals adopted in 2000, these new goals represent a vision for a future without extreme poverty or inequality and injustice, and in which real action has been taken to curb climate change.

Goal 4 aims to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all” by 2030. However, quality education for all is not just a goal in itself, but it is also essential to the achievement of all of the other goals.
