From 29 November to 1 December, UNESCO brought together experts in education for sustainable development, global citizenship and, health and well-being to discuss good practices, progress, monitoring and mainstreaming of transformative education towards target 4.7 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
Transformative education involves the teaching and learning oriented to motivate and empower learners to take informed decisions and actions at the individual, community and global levels. It emphasises the complementarity and synergy between various educational programmes and approaches that have contributed to improving the quality and relevance of education and learning. It calls for an integrated approach to target 4.7 of the SDGs, to pave the way for innovation in education today.
Didier Jourdan gave a keynote lecture on: “Creating safe, inclusive and healthy learning environments”.
