The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals web site lists the 17 aspirational “Global Goals.”

One goal of interest to students would be goal four, labeled “quality education.” According to its description, “Goal four ensures inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning.” Looking at the option ‘Goal 4 Targets,’ it states a priority to build and upgrade educational facilities that are child, disability and gender sensitive and provide safe, nonviolent, inclusive and effective learning environments for all.

The United Nations works in partners with UNICEF, UNESCO, UNDP (United Nations Development Programme), and UNFPA (United Nations Fund for Population Activities), sharing specifically the concept of creating a safer environment for children primarily in more ‘conflict affected areas’ in order for these kids to learn safely and correctly.
