An educated population is key to transforming economies, building inclusive and peaceful societies, and ensuring the lasting protection of the planet and its natural resources, that is, to bringing about the ultimate goals of Agenda 2030. As research highlights, the more skilled a country’s population is, the greater is its capacity to understand and process new information; to absorb, adapt and catalyze the technological advances that drive sustained long-term development;  and to be receptive to environmental and social challenges and seize green opportunities.

The event contributes to the debate on how to improve quality of teaching (SDG4) as a means to socio-economic transformation of societies (SDG 9). It touches on partnership between state and non-state actors in education (SDG 17) and gender equality (SDG 5).

Organized by ITU, UNIDO, WIPO, Austria, and Sao Tome and Principe, this side event will take place on:
