Transformative Education Summit

Mohammed spoke to member states on Friday about preparations for the Transformative Education Summit, according to UN spokesman Stéphane Dujarric at a briefing with journalists in New York.

General Assembly

He said the Summit, to be convened in September on the sidelines of the General Assembly, will boost efforts to get the 2030 Agenda back on track.

“We only have seven months until September,” he told delegates.

Transformative Education Summit

But together, he said, “we can make the Transformative Education Summit not just a meeting about education, but a turning point for education, and a major boost for Sustainable Development Goal four.”

Assistant Secretary General

Dujarric also told reporters that the Assistant Secretary General arrived on Thursday from Haiti where she concluded her two-day visit.

He said that while in Haiti, Mohammed learned more about the issues facing Haitian children and their families in their fight for the right to education.

“She heard from students, teachers and parents how recurring acts of violence and gang pressure in some urban neighborhoods have led to the closure of more than 200 schools.

International Event

“Before leaving the country, he also spoke to journalists about the success of the International Event for the Ficing of the Reconstruction of the Southern Peninsula of Haiti.

“He stressed that, learning the lessons of the past, we now have to ensure that these resources are translated into improvements in the daily lives of the people of the southern peninsula.

“She emphasized that the UN remains at the disposal of the government and people of Haiti in their search for a bright future,” she said.
