The ‘Transforming Education Summit’ will take place during the 77th session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA) in September 2022. It aims to mobilize political ambition, action, solidarity, and solutions with a view to transforming education between now and 2030.
The Summit, convened by the UN Secretary-General, aims to take stock of efforts to recover pandemic-related learning losses, reimagine education systems for the world of today and tomorrow, and revitalize national and global efforts to achieve SDG 4 (quality education).
The main expected outcomes are:
- National and international commitments to transform education;
- Greater public engagement around and support for transforming education; and
- A Secretary General’s summary and call to action, which will capture the knowledge and commitments generated by the Summit and its preparatory process.
The Summit will be preceded by a Pre-Summit at UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Headquarters in Paris, France, in June 2022, with the objectives of harnessing the evolving discussions on transforming education, elaborating initial content for the Summit, and generating greater momentum in the lead up to event.
