The Transforming Education Summit will take place in September 2022 and will provide an opportunity to mobilise greater political ambition, commitment, and action to reverse the slide on SDG 4, reimagine education, and accelerate progress on education and the 2030 Agenda more broadly for the remainder of the Decade of Action.
With the number of crisis-affected children and youth at an all-time global high, it is imperative that education in emergencies is put forward as a core consideration in all discussions. EiE Hub members will work towards ensuring the agenda reflects that.
The Summit will be country-led, inclusive, youth-inspired, and building on existing efforts. It will inspire political and international commitment to transform education and engage the general public in supporting this transformation.
There will be a summary to capture the knowledge generated by the Summit and its preparatory process, informing Summit follow-up, including the work of the SDG4-Education 2030 High-Level Steering Committee and the proposed intergovernmental Summit of the Future in 2023.
A first Informal Briefing to Member States by UN Deputy Secretary-General was held on 18 February. A recording of that meeting is available here.
