G20 Nations Unite for Quality Education

In a significant move, the leaders of the Group of Twenty (G20) have come together to endorse the “G20 New Delhi Leaders’ Declaration: Delivering Quality Education.” The aim? To give the education system a much-needed overhaul.

Here are the key highlights from this groundbreaking declaration:

  • Foundational Learning Matters: The G20 recognizes that foundational learning, which includes literacy, numeracy, and socio-emotional skills, is the cornerstone of education and employment.
  • Closing the Digital Divide: The commitment to harness digital technologies is strong. The goal is to bridge the digital divide and ensure access to learning for all.
  • Empowering Educators: Educational institutions and teachers will receive support to keep pace with emerging trends and technological advances, including the integration of AI.
  • Quality TVET for All: There’s a push to expand access to high-quality Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) programs.
  • Scientific Collaboration: The G20 reaffirms its commitment to promote open, equitable, and secure scientific collaboration. This includes encouraging the mobility of students, scholars, researchers, and scientists across research and higher education institutions.
  • Lifelong Learning: Lifelong learning is in focus, particularly for vulnerable groups. The emphasis is on skilling, reskilling, and upskilling throughout one’s life.

This collective effort by the G20 nations paves the way for a brighter future in education, with a focus on equity, adaptability, and global collaboration. It ensures that education remains a beacon of opportunity for all, breaking down barriers and opening doors to knowledge and skills.
