For those of you looking to relive the best moments, or for those who were unable to join us in person, we are pleased to share with you the highlights from our event in June of this year.

The Schools2030 Global Forum in Porto makes clear that the debate between Foundational Literacy and Numeracy and Social-Emotional Learning is a false dichotomy, like choosing between oxygen and water. Each is elemental. And children, teachers and schools need both for myriad reasons, including the imperative of building climate awareness among the young.

We are thrilled that so many diverse perspectives and voices could come together in such a key year – the half-time mark for the Sustainable Development Goals – so that collectively we can move the needle and inch closer to achieving SDG4 – lifelong quality learning opportunities for all.

I was thrilled to present my innovation at the Schools2030 Global Forum 2023 in Porto. Attending the Global Forum gave me the opportunity to share my experience with diverse teachers from all over the globe, as well as learn from them and implement insightful practices relevant in my context.
