Sustainable Development Goal 4

Ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning


Obtaining a quality education is the foundation to improving people’s lives and sustainable development. Major progress has been made towards increasing access to education at all levels and increasing enrolment rates in schools, particularly for women and girls. Basic literacy skills have improved tremendously, yet bolder efforts are needed to make even greater strides for achieving universal education goals. For example, the world has
achieved equality in primary education between girls and boys, but few countries have achieved that target at all levels of education.


Our View:

As a student-run organization, quality education is our top priority. We also campaign for a structural change in education to allow for more social activism within the academic system. Our strong point of view on reforming and vitalizing academics has long been established. International Relations and Global Diplomacy is a diplomatic academic program conducted by the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) that was conceived and implemented by Collegiate Congress and is supervised by Collegiate Internationals. The program is an example of our commitment for education reform. We understand the UN’s goal is getting quality education to the entire population and increasing literacy and numeracy worldwide. Our vision is an extension of the UN mission, pushing into higher levels of education.
