Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all

Education and trainings are considered to be the key drivers of societal and economic progress. Access to education, level of quality of formal education and equal opportunities are pillars of sound education system. However, life-long education takes an increasingly important position in creating a highly professional, specialized and competitive workforce.

Apart from the high-quality basic education, SDG 4 demands affordable and quality tertiary education and further initiatives for lifelong learning. After an initial phase of education and training, lifelong learning is crucial for improving and developing skills, adapting to technical developments, advancing a career or returning to the labour market.
