Without progress on the UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4, Quality Education, the world likely won’t make much progress on any of the other Goals. Education researchers and educators know how central quality education is to human, social, and scientific development.
Each of the other 16 SDGs must rest on education's foundation—because all research, advancement, and development must proceed from education. Without education, we lack engineers, physicists, and chemists to develop sustainable energy; we lack marine biologists to explore the world below water; we lack economists to tackle poverty or develop paths to decent work; etc.
Education researchers have published a wealth of SDG-related research in recent years aimed at addressing these urgent issues. And to maximize their impact, they’ve chosen to publish it with Springer Nature. So here you’ll find a hand-picked selection of that research gathered on this page, published under our Palgrave, Springer, Nature & BMC imprints.
