As 2020, the year marking the beginning of the Decade of Action, draws to an end, many children and their education has been disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. It has unleashed an unprecedented crisis and caused further stress to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), or the Global Goals, and their progress in quality education for all in countries around the world. In Hong Kong, the educational landscape has also been transformed, and an innovative approach to education through the lens of the UN SDGs hold the key to building back better.
As the global community embarked on the ambitious SDGs starting a few years ago, that it has committed to reach by 2030, it is incumbent upon all of us to consider how we will attain them. A first step in education is to determine where there are relationships, how strong they are, and in what direction they flow. How Hong Kong can Innovate on its educational approach starts on better understanding the role of education, captured by SDG 4 (Quality Education) in relation to the other 16 SDGs. KIDsforSDGs, as Hong Kong’s leading initiative in empowering the next generation of young SDG advocates and young global citizens, focus on the intersectionality of SDGs to bring forth holistic education.
