The High-Level Political Forum is the United Nations’ central platform for follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This year’s forum will be held at the United Nations Headquarters in New York from Tuesday, 7 July, to Thursday, 16 July, under the theme ‘Accelerated action and transformative pathways: Realizing the decade of action and delivery for sustainable development’.
The multidimensional nature of the COVID-19 pandemic has left an indelible mark on the world’s cities, raising fundamental questions about sustainable social, cultural, economic, and environmental urban development.
The COVID-19 pandemic has clearly demonstrated that cities’ resilience is key to tackling crisis situations.
Many countries in Latin America are being severely hit by COVID-19. Most governments have temporarily closed educational institutions in an attempt to contain the spread of the virus.
On 15 and 16 April 2020, the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) and the African Union (AU) will launch the report Trends in Adult Learning and Education in Africa – Findings from the Fourth Global Report on Adult Learning and Education (GRALE 4) via two webinars.
The COVID-19 crisis raises significant concerns for the entire education community: policy-makers, educators, parents and, of course, learners. School and university closures around the world have disrupted the learning and lives of a generation of students.
UNESCO is taking measures in an attempt to stop the spread of the Covid-19 virus. In this regard, please be informed that the Hamburg Education Talk has been postponed.
