Published on 10 December 2021 at 12:07


Inspired and guided by the purposes and objective of the Launch of the UN Day of Education and recalling the UN Agenda on SDG 4 and Targets, the Irene Menakaya School Onitsha and the Center for SDG Global Education USA will organize an international conference to mark the 1st anniversary of the UN Day of Education on January 24, 2020 on SDG 4 Education Solutions Initiative.

The theme “Addressing Quality and Inclusive Education in Rural Communities for Lifelong Learning” is dedicated to supporting the 2030 Development Agenda to realize commitments to quality and inclusive education, educators and teacher’s professional development rights. The goal is geared towards SDG-4 Pillars for transformation, training and learning  as a transformative process that aims to provide knowledge, techniques and tools to develop skills and changes in attitudes, growth and development behaviours in the minds of educators and teachers for community development.

The purpose is to rekindle global action on SDG 4 and Targets to establish significant involvement of community to education as models in providing solutions to education in rural communities.

The program will again create awareness on a call to action on SDG-4 and Targets in achieving inclusive and quality education to promote lifelong learning in communities across the world, especially in community classrooms.

The Education Solutions initiative aims to draw attention on the education, training and workshop on the SDG-4 and Targets and the need to educate stakeholders in education about the SDG-4 and targets while contributing to the 2030 Development Agenda. The importance of involving educators, stakeholders in education, student teachers and retired teachers is to address solutions to existing education challenges and gaps in promotion of lifelong learning within the domains of education in achieving SDG-4 and targets for the 2030 Development Agenda. Again, Education Solutions is further aimed to contribute towards the agenda for educators/teacher education, quality and inclusive education for lifelong learning and the Education 2030 Development Framework.
