Bridge 47 advocates for Transformative Education and SDG Target 4.7 to be reflected in UN, European, national and local policies, plans and strategies. Bridge 47 believes SDG Target 4.7 is the key to unlocking the transformation we need to achieve sustainable development and global justice.  

 

 

Envision 4.7 - Roadmap & Policy Papers 

In November 2019, Bridge 47 organised Envision 4.7, an event which brought together 200 people from around the world to create the Envision 4.7 Roadmap, a collaborative set of policy recommendations for the implementation of SDG Target 4.7 in Europe.

Envision 4.7 Policy Papers 

The ‘Envision 4.7 Policy Papers’ outline how the European Commission’s six policy priorities for 2019-2024 - the Green Deal, Future of Europe, Digital Education Plan, A Strong Social Europe for Just Transition, European Education Area and New European Consensus on Development - all stand to benefit from the inclusion and implementation of SDG Target 4.7, which focuses on transformative education. This is life-long and value-based learning, designed to promote global citizenship, sustainable development, human rights and gender equality. 

The Envision 4.7 Policy Papers build on the six policy recommendations listed in the Envision 4.7 Roadmap: 

  • Transformative Education 

  • Cross-sectorial Cooperation 

  • Indicators for SDG Target 4.7 

  • Lifelong Learning 

  • Competencies for SDG Target 4.7 

  • Resources for SDG Target 4.7 

 

Advocacy Publications

Bridge 47 has launched a series of six new publications on topics identified in the Envision 4.7 roadmap. The publications delve deeper into the thematics of transformative education, lifelong learning, cross-sectoral cooperation, indicators, competencies and resources for SDG Target 4.7. 

The publications were commissioned to support advocacy for more space for SDG Target 4.7 of Agenda 2030 in European and global policies. They are meant to encourage discussion and represent the authors’ views on the topic.
