Transforming education: Youth Declaration

The effects of Pandemic Covid 19 on education systems have made some of the problems they were already facing even more visible and accentuated: inequalities and exclusion generated by different factors (poverty, ethnicity, language, forced displacement, gender, sexual orientation, religion…); lack of quality and relevance in the face of a world in deep change and uncertainty.
The Transforming Education Summit, promoted by the Secretary-General of the United Nations, António Guterres, last September, arose from the urgent need to think of solutions so that no child, no young person is left behind and fully enjoys the right to education. An education that is intended to be of quality, inclusive and to provide the skills for all to continue learning throughout their lives, in accordance with Sustainable Development Goal No. 4 (Quality Education) of the 2030 Agenda.
The preparation and realisation of the Summit involved experts and policy makers from more than 130 countries and, of course, the recipients of education themselves, children and young people from all over the world. Their involvement and mobilisation in open forums and consultations resulted in a Youth Declaration on Transforming Education, available in several languages on the Youth Declaration page.
