The Challenge of SDG 4.1

Under the UN’s Sustainable Development goals, all girls and boys should complete free, equitable and quality education until age 18, by 2030.

This is an ambitious goal, and now stretches to include secondary education as well as primary. How can we ensure that every young person in the world has the chance of secondary education, as a stepping stone to a positive future?

Martin Burt of Foundation Paraguaya has developed a network of agricultural schools which provide secondary education and opportunities for productive livelihoods. He will lead a discussion about how we can make this goal a reality.

The perfect session for: anyone with an interest in young people, education, livelihoods and international development.
