Read about the three key themes of the conference here.

This conference aims to further strengthen the momentum of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) and Global Citizenship Education (GCED) by demonstrating how emotional intelligence – built by Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) aimed at building skills and competencies such as attention control, emotional regulation, perspective taking, empathy, compassion, critical inquiry and systems thinking among others – are key for sustained success in achieving SDG 4.7.

The conference aims to showcase the potential of digital pedagogies in the scaling of mainstreaming SEL in education systems, school curricula and teacher training.
