At School of Corporate Affairs (SOCA), we are proud to be committed to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals;
17 goals set in 2015 by the United Nations to be achieved in the next 15 years (2030) in order to make our world better - end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. We recognize that actions are necessary to advance the Global Goals, and agree that the chosen goals will improve our society and our planet if achieved.
Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG 4) is the education goal
It aims to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.”
4.7 Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship
Target 4.7 By 2030, ensure that all learners acquire the knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, including, among others, through education for sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and nonviolence, global citizenship and appreciation of cultural diversity and of culture’s contribution to sustainable development
It is vital to give a central place to strengthening education’s contribution to the fulfilment of human rights, peace and responsible citizenship from local to global levels, gender equality, sustainable development and health. The content of such education must be relevant, with a focus on both cognitive and non-cognitive aspects of learning. The knowledge, skills, values and attitudes required by citizens to lead productive lives, make informed decisions and assume active roles locally and globally in facing and resolving global challenges can be acquired through education for sustainable development (ESD) and global citizenship education (GCED), which includes peace and human rights education, as well as intercultural education and education for international understanding.
