Unmasking Transformative Education: A Critical Journey towards SDG 4 – EASG Side event at the HLPF 2023

In an era where the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 4, Quality Education, remains a pressing challenge, it is crucial to critically examine the concept of transformative education beyond the conventional rhetoric. EASG invites to this immersive event, “Unveiling Transformative Education: A Critical Exploration for Advancing SDG 4,” where we will delve deep into the intricacies and complexities of transformative education.

Going beyond the surface-level discourse, this thought-provoking gathering will challenge assumptions, explore realities, and foster a deeper understanding of the transformative potential of education in driving sustainable development. Join us as we critically examine the gaps, identify barriers, and collectively envision innovative pathways towards achieving SDG 4. Together, we can propel the discourse forward and generate actionable insights to catalyse meaningful change in education systems worldwide.

Through thought-provoking presentations and critical reflections, the event will uncover the underlying principles, methodologies, and systemic changes necessary for genuine transformative education.

The event will also discuss how education, as an enabling human right, plays a key role in realizing SDGs 6,7, 9, 11 and 17.  The transformations that education causes are not limited to teaching and learning spaces but are projected in all institutional and community activities. For this reason, this side event is propitious to analyse the different interlinkages and the forms of communication that education promotes.
