Civil Society Organisations in new UN Education Stakeholder Group
The UN General Assembly recognised in 2013 the need to create new ‘educational and academic’ stakeholder group. The European Students’ Union (ESU), the Global Campaign for Education (GCE), Education International (EI) and the International Council for Adult Education (ICAE) have now come together and proposed to the UN that they could be the Organising Partners of this new stakeholder group focused on education. The new, universal Sustainable Development (SDG) Agenda came into force on 1 January 2016. A step forward in this new era is the single agenda for education, whereby SDG 4 and the Education 2030 Framework for Action share the same vision and targets.
