2020 Education is a programme for young people, teachers, professionals and organisations worldwide, who believe in a sustainable and equitable future for the planet and an education which gives everyone the opportunity to understand the issues, and be part of the solutions, from an early age. 2020 Education also gives young people valuable skills for higher education and the world of work.

Across the UK and around the world, schools and other groups are running innovative projects which give young people practical understanding of global sustainability issues and empower them to make a difference through local action. 2020 Education aims to identify these projects, facilitate links between them, and help them grow. By promoting the amazing work already happening, we can inspire more new projects, and show that these are not isolated examples but a powerful model of what education can be in the 21st Century.

In an age of uncertainty, 2020 Education supports the vision of forward thinking education leaders everywhere.
