RewirEd’s vision is to transform lives through education, recognizing the instrumental role of education as a main driver of development and in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We commit with a sense of urgency to a single, renewed education agenda that is holistic, ambitious and aspirational, leaving no one behind.
RewirEd’s vision is fully in line with the SDG 4 ‘Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all’ and its corresponding targets. It is inspired by a humanistic vision of education and development based on human rights and dignity; social justice; inclusion; protection; cultural, linguistic and ethnic diversity; and shared responsibility and accountability.
p class=”text-dark”>We reaffirm that education is a public good, a fundamental human right and a basis for guaranteeing the realization of other rights. Education is the ‘the golden thread that runs through all 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)’. SDG4 broadens the depth and breadth of ‘education’ to people of all ages, and expands its scope to a lifelong process spanning formal, non-formal and informal settings.
We recognize that the success of the Education 2030 agenda requires sound policies and planning as well as efficient implementation arrangements. It is also clear that the aspirations encompassed in the SDG 4 cannot be realized without a significant and well-targeted increase in financing, particularly in those countries furthest from achieving quality education for all at all levels.
The 2030 SDGs Agenda goes beyond rhetoric and lays down a concrete call to action for people, planet, and prosperity. It encourages us to take bold and transformative steps which are urgently needed to shift the world onto a sustainable and resilient path. This can be achieved only through Education.
