TRANSFORMING EDUCATION FOR THE YOUTH BY THE YOUTH
November 20 is always a special date on my calendar. It is World Children’s Day!
An annual day of action for children, by children.
But, this day is not an annual event to hear the youth (and then put them aside better), it is a celebration of actions to sustainably include youth in the societal transformation. Each year, this day reminds me “Why” and -most importantly- “How” we need to act to reach the 17 Global Goals.
We will not achieve the 17 Global Goals without a profound transformation of education. Not just because Goal 4 is about Quality Education, but because how we raise the next generation is at the heart of each of the Global Goals.
