Education 2030 goes beyond past attempts to ensure access to basic education, as set out in the Education For All goals and the education-related Millennium Development Goal 2 of 2000-2015.

The Global Education 2030 Agenda new expanded scope:

  • reaches from early childhood learning to youth and adult education and training;
  • emphasizes the acquisition of skills for work;
  • underlines the importance of citizenship education in a plural and interdependent world;
  • focuses on inclusion, equity, and gender equality;
  • and aims to ensure quality learning outcomes for all, throughout their lives.

The main responsibility for implementing the agenda lies with governments, with UNESCO and partners providing support through coordinated policy advice, technical assistance, capacity development and monitoring of progress at global, regional and national levels.
