Held on the margins of the ECOSOC High-Level Political Forum (HLPF), this side-event will enable a constructive dialogue among a diverse range of policy makers and practitioners engaged in the field of both education and SDGs in general.


More particularly, the event will:

  • Highlight ways to harness the transformative power of education in achieving sustainable societies and discuss how policies and practices in ESD can contribute to building a better future.
  • Showcase the evidence-based benefits and innovations of integrating ESD into all levels of education and training from early childhood to tertiary and adult education, so that all individuals are provided with lifelong opportunities to fully develop their human potential.
  • Emphasize the role of ESD as a cross-cutting instrument to empower learners at all levels of education which enable more profound and holistic understanding of sustainable development and potential solutions.
  • Strengthen and accelerate existing global frameworks and networks of ESD at local, national, regional, and global levels, with a view to sharing good practices.


This virtual event is co-organized by the Group of Friends for Education and Lifelong Learning (Co-Chaired by Japan, Argentina, Czech Republic, Kenya, Norway) and UNESCO.
