Paris, December 09, 2022 — To advance its priorities, on December 8 & 9, UNESCO convened a meeting of the High-Level Steering Committee on Sustainable Development Goal 4 on Education. The meeting took place at UNESCO Headquarters, under the chairmanship of Audrey Azoulay, UNESCO’s Director General, and Julius Maada Bio, the President of Sierra Leone.

Following the Transforming Education Summit (TES) on September 2022 in New York, the UN Secretary-General mandated the Committee to ensure and monitor the effective follow-up of countries’ commitments at the Summit.

The Committee called on world leaders to endorse the six calls to action at the Summit:

“Ensuring all children and youth are climate-ready, improving schools’ digital connectivity and students’ access to online learning contents are critical goals. We appeal to world leaders to accelerate progress in these areas following the agreements reached by the Transforming Education Summit,” UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay said.

The Sustainable Development Goal benchmarks will measure each country’s progress by 2025 and 2030, representing the transformation countries want to see from the Summit. For example, governments could count how many schools are green-accredited and how much national laws, policies, and standards cover climate education. On digital transformation, countries could measure the extent to which every school and child is connected to digital solutions.

The High-Level Steering Committee (HLSC) comprises principals of United Nations and education partner agencies, civil society and donor representatives, and Ministers of Education from 12 countries.

HLSC follows the Transforming Education Summit (TES) that took place in September 2022 in New York. TES was the largest global education summit in recent decades. It led to national commitments from 133 countries to recover learning losses from the pandemic and transform their education systems to make them more inclusive, relevant, and resilient to future shocks.
