Co-organized by UNESCO and MGCY in cooperation with other UN entities,  this session will explore the role of youth in enhancing the quality of formal and informal education. The event will also raise awareness about youth and student priorities to ensure that education systems are inclusive, future-proof, sustainable, safe, and backed by education policy, financing, and infrastructure. Youth representatives and UN senior officials will reiterate the need to support and build upon existing youth-led solutions to improve the accessibility and equity of education and to accelerate progress on SDG4.

This virtual event will provide a safe space for young people to share their perspectives on how to transform education amidst ongoing crises. Through an interactive dialogue, youth representatives will identify recommendations for the future of education and learning, including as part of the overall consultations on the Transforming Education Summit to be held in September 2022.
