SDG 4 aims to ensure access to equitable and quality education at all stages of life. SDG 4 also strives to raise the number of youth and adults with relevant skills for employment, decent jobs, and entrepreneurship, in addition to formal qualifications.

Furthermore, SDG 4 calls for the elimination of gender and income disparities in access to education. Acquiring universal literacy, numeracy, and the acquisition of knowledge and skills for sustainable development are crucial for empowering people to live independent, healthy, and sustainable lives.

To accelerate progress, SDG 4 calls for building and upgrading of educational facilities, the expansion of higher education scholarships available to developing countries and increasing the supply of qualified teachers.

In the EU context, monitoring SDG 4 focuses on progress made in promoting and increasing basic education, tertiary education, and adult education.
