We don’t sell content, we help build better people.
The Incheon Declaration and Framework for Action, Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG4) outlined by UNESCO defines education as the most important goal required to support the rest of the world’s critical issues. The downside with the SDG4 plan is that it currently only defines what ‘should’ or ‘could’ be done, while providing recommendations for governments, corporations and other world leaders to take action. Processes and steps for achieving this goal have not been clearly defined, creating vagueness and ambiguity for action. This reduces accountability.
Even though the understanding of why Education for All is important and clear, the who, how, when and where have been left unanswered. betterU realized many years ago that without a global centralized system, attainment of the SDG4, while ambitious, will remain unattainable.
Over the last seven years we have traveled the world to educate our leaders and bring together global educators and leaders to support our vision. The efforts made by betterU around the world have been to put in place global solutions that in the end would result in actions that governments and other global leaders could get behind to support a fundamental change in how people access education. Global collaboration is the only solution to solve Education for All.
