Education for People and Planet

LfS Scotland members were privileged to hear from Aaron Benavot, Director of the new Global Education Monitoring (GEM) Report by UNESCO at our 2016 AGM held on 19 January 2017. He spoke about the potential for education to propel progress towards all the Sustainable Development Goals outlined in the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The report shows that education in every country needs a major transformation to fulfill that potential and meet the current challenges facing humanity and the planet.
