Mobilizing youth, students, parents and other stakeholders who are actively engaged in the education sector to achieve the Sustainable education goal and its 7 targets is one of the top priority areas of CED Sri Lanka. In this process we identified that a lack of knowledge on SDGs hinder this ambitious vision which we need to achieve in 2030. While we understand the importance of removing these barriers, CED Sri Lanka compiled a booklet on SDGs to develop the knowledge and enhance understanding on SDGs specially SDG4 which plays a significant role to achieve other SDG targets simultaneously.
This booklet provides an overview on SDG Goals and its targets, SDG4 goals and targets, challenges that we have to combat in this process and current status of education. The final chapter of the booklet discusses the SDG 4.7 target and main components of Global Citizenship Education.
