On July 18, 2014, global citizenship was added to the language of SDG 4.7. Our celebration marks the anniversary of that date and reaffirms the commitment made in Gyeongju to establish an International Day of Education for Global Citizenship at the United Nations.
An International Day of Education for Global Citizenship will be a day to spotlight SDG 4: Quality Education, in particular SDG 4.7: “the knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, including, among others, through education for sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship and appreciation of cultural diversity and of culture’s contribution to sustainable development.”
