Mission 4.7 brings together leaders from government, academia, civil society, and business to accelerate the implementation of Education for Sustainable Development around the world.
Mission 4.7 will build on and draw upon UNESCO’s global leadership on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) and Global Citizenship Education (GCED), as mandated by its Member States and the UN General Assembly, respectively, as well as on its responsibility for the monitoring of SDG Target 4.7. Mission 4.7 will ensure alignment with UNESCO’s global frameworks and conceptualizations, and complement existing programs already underway in this context.
SDG Target 4.7:
“By 2030 ensure all learners acquire knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, including among others through education for sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship, and appreciation of cultural diversity and of culture’s contribution to sustainable development.”
In addition to advocating for the achievement of SDG Target 4.7 at global, national, and local levels, Mission 4.7 will also curate and create relevant educational resources, push countries for greater investments in quality education, and identify ways to train and support educators around the world.
