The right to education and lifelong learning: the new normality in a broken world

Don’t Let the Light of Education be extinguished.


The High-Level Political Forum 2022 offers the opportunity to review Sustainable Development Goal 4: The Right to Quality Education.  The high-level political forum on sustainable development is consistent with its universal intergovernmental character of providing political leadership, guidance, and recommendations for sustainable development goals. The Education and  Academia Stakeholder group event hosted by the Global Campaign for Education, Global Campaign for Education-US, International Council for Adult Education, Global Students Forum, and Government of Argentina held an HLPF side event to provide key lessons and review progress in implementing the 2030 Agenda for SDG-4 whilst identifying the policy recommendations required for education recovery post-COVID-19. The EASG HLPF side event brought seasoned educational experts drawn from the global pool of candidates to provide an independent assessment focusing on how to reposition the education sector as a priority sector in a world recovering from the COVID-19 outbreak and protracted conflict and disasters.
