The Future of Education: Innovations Needed to Meet the Sustainable Development Goals
Pota, Vikas
Childhood Education, v93 n5 p368-371 2017
In autumn 2015, the world's governments came together to agree to 17 ambitious Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which promised to overcome a vast array of problems--from poverty and hunger to health and gender equality--by 2030. The UNESCO report "Education for People and Planet: Creating Sustainable Futures for All" charted the progress in meeting these targets. According to the author, the report demonstrates an obvious truth: education is the rock on which sustainable development is built. In this article, the author reviews the report and argues for the need for the massive increase in investment and commitment from the public, private, and voluntary sectors for education.
