Within the framework of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the international community has committed itself with the fourth goal (SDG 4) to promote inclusive, equal and quality education and lifelong learning opportunities for all. Alongside the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UN CRPD), the Agenda is another important milestone for the realisation of the rights of persons with disabilities worldwide. Nevertheless, many children and young people with disabilities are denied the realisation of their right to education. Yet education is a prerequisite for peaceful and social coexistence.
The demand for inclusive education as an integral part of the 2030 Agenda refers to all areas of education. This includes early childhood, school, vocational/university education and lifelong learning. Another area of education is the education approach Education for Sustainable Development/Global Development (ESD). All these educational areas are also taken into account in the sub-theme "Inclusive Education".
