SDG4 - Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all

"Looking at SDG 4 'quality education', more children are participating in early childhood education and care, fewer pupils are leaving school early and more people are attaining tertiary education. In contrast to these positive developments, however, underachievement in reading, maths and science has increased, and the benchmarks for the employment rate of recent graduates and adult participation in learning."

All known CLI do promote capacity building (knowledge, skills and competences) and most deliver trainings that promote awareness raising of the world situation and also new living paradigms, individual and collective behaviour exchange and also the creation and maintenance/development of Community Supported groups that fulfil the wishes and needs of the local community and territory. Also, in most initiatives there is a gender balance between man and women in all positions while children and youth are also considered in most decision making.
