High-quality and inclusive education is one of the most central preconditions for sustainable development and functioning societies. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights affirms that education is also a fundamental human right for everyone and this right was further detailed in the Convention against Discrimination in Education.
Finland aims to strengthen commitment of its multilateral and bilateral partners to inclusive education. Regardless of gender, disability, ethnic or other background individuals of all ages have equal rights to education and possibilities to take part and learn.
Solving the global learning or education crisis requires significant investments to teacher training, learning conditions and learning outcomes, as well as development of education systems.
