Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Advocate and Chairperson of Education Above All, participated in a high-level SDG Advocacy meeting hosted by the UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, at the United Nations Headquarters in New York on Sunday.
HH Sheikha Moza thanked the Secretary-General for emphasising the need for collaboration between the Advocates in order to push the 2030 Agenda. She highlighted that Education Above All will work towards the fulfillment of universal primary education all over the world.
HH Sheikha Moza also called for increased awareness about the scale of destruction caused by conflict and its negative impact on SDG progress, especially in education.
Launched in 2015, the Sustainable Development Goals aim to achieve universal peace and sustainably transform the world by 2030, through identifying and tackling various challenges like poverty, hunger, education, and climate change among 13 other goals.
In 2019, HH Sheikha Moza was reappointed as an Advocate among 16 eminent persons to assist the UN Secretary-General and create momentum to achieve the 2030 Agenda.
