Under the stewardship of UNESCO, Sustainable Development Goal 4 and
the Education 2030 Agenda recognise the transformative power of education
in relation to all other SDGs.
Target 4.7 in particular calls for key ESD themes to be mainstreamed in curricular content, teaching practices and assessments, and for ESD to be given greater importance in policy planning.
To this end, a network of around 90 GAP Key Partners, which includes governments, civil society organisations, stakeholders from the private sector, and academia, are working in five interconnected Priority Action Areas.
