Education is a fundamental human right and a powerful tool for sustainable development. It is essential for building a more just, equitable, and prosperous world.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), adopted by the United Nations in 2015, include a goal to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. This goal, SDG 4, is essential for achieving the other SDGs.

However, there are still significant challenges to achieving SDG 4. Millions of children and youth are still out of school, and many of those who are in school are not learning the skills they need to succeed.
In the post-2030 agenda, it is important to continue to invest in education and to make sure that education is accessible to all, regardless of their background. Education will continue to play a critical role in addressing the future challenges such as technology disruption, climate change, and inequality.

Education can help to prepare individuals not just for the jobs of the future, but to develop the skills needed to solve complex problems, and build a more just and sustainable world.
This session will explore the role of education in the post-2030 agenda. We will discuss the challenges and opportunities facing education, and the ways in which we can overcome these challenges. We will also discuss the importance of making education a priority in the post-2030 agenda.

The session will be of interest to policymakers, educators, researchers, and anyone who is interested in the future of education.
