Unesco Recommendation of 1974
The 1974 Recommendation Concerning Education for International Understanding, Cooperation and Peace Concerning Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms formulates principles and norms that allow the international regulation of education so that it can contribute to justice, freedom, human rights and peace, indicated Unesco in its website.
The Recommendation emphasizes the role that education plays in eradicating conditions that constitute a threat to the survival and well-being of humanity.
The review represents a unique opportunity to reactivate and update the global consensus on the role of education, with a view to preparing learners of all ages, as well as future generations, to cope with shocks in the future and build a more just, sustainable, healthy and peaceful future, highlights the organization.
The Unesco States decided to review the recommendation to take into account the changes that have occurred in the global and educational sphere, in particular the requirements of the 2030 Framework for Action and the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG 4) on education, with a view to to strengthen the role of education in promoting world peace, international understanding and sustainable development.
The review will also take into account recent findings from the Futures of Education Report Reimagining our futures together: a new social contract for education.
