In June 2022, Schools2030 hosted the inaugural Schools2030 Global Forum in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, bringing together a cross-section of leaders from global, national, and local education ecosystems to collectively explore three key topics and accompanying questions over three days:

Day 1: The Future of Assessment and Evidence in Education: How might we better measure holistic quality learning outcomes across Schools, Systems and Societies?

Day 2: The Future of Design and Innovation in Education: How might we better catalyse inclusive quality learning experiences across Schools, Systems, and Societies?

Day 3: The Future of Policy and Practice in Education: How might we better collaborate to advance equitable quality learning journeys across Schools, Systems and Societies

More than 200 delegates with various expertise and perspectives from over 25 countries gathered to engage in critical dialogue with one another. These included stakeholders from across key educational constituencies including, but not limited to: Youth, Teachers, School Networks, Government Leaders, Education System Leaders, Funders, Researchers, and Civil Society.

The Schools2030 Global Forum forms one part of the important third step (‘Showcase’) of the three-step model and aims to create an annual global pulse about how best to link schools, systems and societies for the future of learning in policy, research and practice. It is one of the only events in the global education calendar that aims to ensure that one of the most important constituents – teachers – are represented at these important discussions.

To be hosted by a different Schools2030 programme country each year, the Schools2030 Global Forum seeks to generate new insights, partnerships, and action steps about how best schools, systems and societies can work better together to achieve SDG4 by 2030.
