Teachers to Become Advocates for Sustainable Development

A new UNESCO campaign is calling on teachers eager to become advocates for education to help lobby for progress toward achieving the new sustainable-development agenda.

This campaign starts following the United Nations adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), each with specific targets to be achieved over the next fifteen years, including a standalone target on education. In Paris the Framework for Action for Education 2030, which sets the roadmap toward achieving the global education goal, has also been adopted.

Teachers signing up receive advocacy toolkits and country-specific information to help them lobby for change in their country.

One of the key advocacy toolkits is the “Advocacy toolkit for teachers to provide a quality education”, produced jointly by the EFA GMR, the International Task Force on Teachers for EFA, and EI, helps teachers use evidence-based recommendations for their advocacy.
