The High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) organised by the UN, take place from 6 to 15 July. The HLPF is the United Nations’ main platform for the follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The meeting brings together leading figures from governments, businesses and social leaders.
In 2021, the HLPF is discussing ways to ensure a sustainable and resilient recovery from COVID-19 with the aim of achieving the Agenda 2030 targets. Ministers and other participants are exploring various aspects of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its impacts. They are discussing the types of policies and international cooperation that can control the pandemic and its impacts.
ProFuturo’s Director General, Magdalena Brier participated in the event on Thursday 8 July. We presented Club 2030 together with Education for Sharing and we talked about the alliance between digital education and global citizenship values to promote the SDGs and transform teachers and students into agents for global change. The presentation was followed by a demonstration of how Club 2030 works, in its implementation in Mexico and other areas in Latin America.
The meeting served as a space to discuss the relationship between sustainable development, human rights and education. The event was moderated by Borhene Chakroun of UNESCO.
What is Club 2030?
Club 2030 is an educational proposal created by ProFuturo and Education for Sharing. This project seeks to make children around the world aware of the key skills for sustainable development through a cross-cutting theme such as the Sustainable Development Goals promoted by the United Nations in the 2030 Agenda.
This initiative is designed to enable teachers to incorporate the SDGs into their curriculum planning, combining digital and experiential learning grouped into a training plan and four missions: Humanity, Progress, Environment and Peace and Community.
