Education is a cornerstone of sustainable development – it empowers and uplifts individuals, nations, and society. However, millions of people around the world are held back from achieving their full potential. Investing in education and skills is the answer. It is the foundation of opportunity and progress and creates better futures for all.
Our future innovators, entrepreneurs, and leaders will need new skills to help us meet the challenges of tomorrow. Unfortunately, today, 800 million youth are not going to have even the basic skills to succeed in the workforce by 2030. Educational inequality was a global challenge well before COVID, but the pandemic has further widened the learning gap.
At Deloitte, we are committed to expanding opportunities for 100 million people by 2030 by developing job skills, improving educational outcomes, and providing opportunities for individuals from underrepresented and marginalized groups around the world. In line with this ambition, Deloitte is proud to support the Lead2030 Challenge for SDG4 for the fifth year. Working together, we can accelerate innovative youth-led solutions to achieve inclusive, equitable, and quality education for all.
