At the 2023 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Summit, Club of Rome Co-President Sandrine Dixson-Déclève will speak in the panel “Elevating education as a win-win for SDGs”, which aims to explore priorities to boost ambition, investment, and progress action for education everywhere. As we reach the halftime mark of the SDGs, we must mobilise ambition, innovation, and a comprehensive approach to keep the promise of Goal 4.
If present trends continue, by 2030 some 84 million children will be out of school and 300 million more will lack the necessary skills in reading and mathematics. New investments and commitments are needed to transform education. The session will bring youth voices to the front and centre, joining together with education advocates, world leaders, renowned athletes, civil society, and the private sector representatives.
