Mohammed VI Foundation for Protection of Environment, Chaired by HRH Princess Lalla Hasnaa, Takes Part in UN Summit on Transforming Education

The summit, attended by world leaders, is organized by UN Secretary-General António Guterres with the aim of accelerating the implementation of the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) on education.

The Foundation, which has placed education and awareness-raising at the center of its mission for the past 20 years, participated in the mobilization and solutions days held on October 16 and 17, according to a statement from the Foundation, which emphasizes that the events focused on the Foundation’s concrete commitment to solutions in three parallel meetings.

At the first event on transforming education and sustainable development, co-organized by Morocco, Ivory Coast and the UNESCO Institutes of Lifelong Learning, the Foundation presented, in collaboration with the Ministry of National Education, Preschool and Sports, the initiatives undertaken over the past twenty years and their acceleration and expansion to Africa, a continent where the Foundation’s commitment is growing, the same source said.

Morocco was also represented at the meeting by the Minister of National Education, Preschool and Sports, Chakib Benmoussa.

The Foundation presented its action through the African Youth Climate Hub Initiative, AYCH, whose ambassador came from Ethiopia to talk about it and share his experience of involvement in transformative education in his country. A teacher, representing civil society from Burkina Faso, also presented the experience of transformative education in his country.

The Mohammed VI Foundation for the Protection of the Environment, represented at these events by its Secretary General, Nouzha Alaoui, is mobilized to advance education for sustainable development in the many programs it implements in Morocco and Africa, with the support of international or national, public and private partners, according to the communiqué.
