Bristol Conversations in Education - The World's New Education Agenda 18 Months On: Is the Sustainable Development Goal For them or For Us?
Kenneth King, University of Edinburgh
Room 4.10 35 Berkeley Square, Clifton, Bristol, BS8 1JA
This event is part of the Graduate School of Education's 'Bristol Conversations in Education' seminar series.
‘Like the 2030 Agenda as whole, Sustainable Development Goal 4 on Education resulted from what is arguably the most inclusive process of consultation in the history of the United Nations’ Given this powerful claim about the consultative process, it is crucially important to know for education and training what has actually transpired globally, regionally and nationally since the education and other goals were confirmed in the UN General Assembly (UNGA) just over a year ago in September 2015. Following the goal and target agreement for 2030, the question is ‘What next?’ How will these new targets be achieved? How will they be measured, and which indicators will be used? How will they be financed? Since the SDGs are aspirational global goals, the key issue now is if, and how, they will be translated into national and international policies around the globe over the coming years.
There will be refreshments available before the event.
