Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all

The new education agenda, also known as “Education 2030”, is fully captured in Sustainable Development Goal 4 (Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all) and its corresponding targets. Further, the World Education Forum 2015 (WEF 2015) adopted the Incheon Declaration which calls for “meaningful education and training opportunities for the large population of out-of-school children and adolescents, who require immediate, targeted and sustained action ensuring that all children are in school and are learning”.
