UNESCO will co-host with the Government of France, the Global Education Meeting’s high-level segment. This high-level segment will aim to create a global political momentum to raise the profile of education and its investment imperative. It will adopt the “Paris Declaration” to renew national and international leaders’ commitment to invest in education – domestically and internationally – and to accelerate progress toward Sustainable Development Goal 4 (Quality Education).
During the meeting, the SDG 4 High-Level Steering Committee will be officially launched. This renewed global cooperation mechanism will play a central role in monitoring Member States’ progress, international actors’ contributions as well as recommend priority actions for education.
