This Ministerial event on Global Competencies and Global Citizenship Education will inspire and challenge Ministers and high level representatives to discuss 21st century skills needed for unparalleled challenges and opportunities, as well as the broader trajectory for education in face of these changes.

The meeting serves to discuss challenges and successes of implementing SDG 4, particularly Target 4.7; to share strategies, examples and best practices of education transformations and Global Competencies, and Global Citizenship Education (GCED) work in Canada and Korea; and to explore potential partnerships and synergies to solidify global efforts towards SDG Target 4.7, GCED, and the realization of global competencies.
