Education and the Millennium Development Goals

Education is a major catalyst for human development. As nations prepare for the High-level Meeting on the Millennium Development Goals (MDG Summit) at the UN on 20-22 September, UNESCO looks at how rapid advances in education can help to achieve all of the MDGs.  In the year 2000, 147 heads of State and Government, and 189 nations pledged to halve extreme poverty by the year 2015.

UNESCO has developed a website to help those interested to understand UNESCO's programs in support of education for the MDGs. Click here to go to that website!
