Educating for an Inclusive and Sustainable Future
The 9th Global Meeting of the CCNGO-Education 2030 will provide a platform for discussion on where civil society stands since the last CCNGO Global Meeting (May 2017), activities undertaken, key challenges encountered, progress achieved and opportunities identified for the way forward.
The focus and major theme of the Meeting will be to discuss and agree on the role and engagement of civil society organizations in supporting equity and inclusion in the implementation of SDG4-Education 2030 at national, regional and global level.
An important driver for the implementation of SDG4 is the translation and integration of its vision into international and national legal frameworks. The FFA is grounded in the principles of the right to education and calls for “the provision of 12 years of free, publicly funded, equitable quality primary and secondary education, of which at least nine years are compulsory, leading to relevant learning outcomes.” Albeit not legally binding in itself, elements of SDG4 are found in different international legal conventions and treaties including the Convention against Discrimination in Education.
The 9th Global Meeting of the CCNGO-Education 2030 will also look at the issue of conflict as a cross cutting theme. The provision of education to refugees, migrants and displaced persons, who are prone to extreme vulnerability and exclusion, is particularly relevant.
