Findings of the 6th Consultation on the implementation of the 1974 Recommendation concerning Education for International Understanding, Co-operation and Peace and Education relating to Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms (2012-2016)

 

Progress on Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship Education “The Recommendation concerning Education for International Understanding, Co-operation and Peace and Education relating to Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms” was adopted by UNESCO’s General Conference at its 18th session in 1974. Every four years, Member States report to UNESCO on measures taken to implement the Recommendation in pre-primary, primary, secondary and post-secondary/tertiary education. This document summarizes and analyses the main findings of the 6th Consultation on the implementation of the 1974 Recommendation, covering the period of 2012 to 2016.

 

The findings of the 6th Consultation provide important insight into how Member States are implementing the 1974 Recommendation as well as how they are progressing towards Target 4.7 of Sustainable Development Goal 4 on Education. Target 4.7 concerns Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship Education, which are closely related to the 1974 Recommendation. Supporting Member States in implementing Target 4.7 is a UNESCO priority and essential to progress across the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
