We always hear “Be the Change you wish to see in the World ''. Today I want to say “Educate For The Change You Wish To See”. In Sерtеmbеr 2015, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable development that includes 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 targets that guarantee to leave no one behind. I believe achieving the 17 sustainable development goals starts with having a quality education for all, to empower students to be the change, create, innovate and contribute to the world.
