UNESCO convened a meeting in early December 2022 of the High-Level Steering Committee on Sustainable Development Goal 4 on education.
The Committee called on countries to adopt new indicators measuring the implementation of green education and digital access to learning for all. Following the Transforming Education Summit (TES) that took place on September 2022 in New York, the UN Secretary General mandated the Committee to ensure and monitor the effective follow-up of the commitments of countries made at the Summit.
“Ensuring that 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, according to the agreements reached at the Transforming Education Summit.”
