CONVENING 17: COLLABORATION ACROSS THE SDGS
WHY START WITH EDUCATION?
Quality education is more than training teachers, increasing literacy rates, and building schools, especially when looking at children who have been forcibly displaced. From war to hurricanes to fires - there are many reasons children face displacement and disruption in their education. If we want children grappling with displacement, violence, and inequality to learn effectively we must focus on foundational support like delivering quality mental health, access to housing, water, and food. The SDGs are inextricably linked and education is the lynch pin to addressing all other challenges from poverty to climate change.
