Education and Academia Stakeholder Group
The Education and Academia Stakeholder Group works to ensure and facilitate meaningful participation of human rights-based education and academia organisations and networks in UN policy spaces, including in the follow-up and review of the SDGs. It is organised by the Global Campaign for Education, Education International, the International Council for Adult Education, and the European Students' Union.
The EASG is open to all organisations working for the full realisation of the right to free, inclusive quality education for all, the implementation of Agenda 2030, and of SDG 4 in particular.
Potential members of the EASG must meet the following criteria:
a) demonstrate a commitment to promoting human rights and dignity for all
b) be working towards the overcoming of all forms of discrimination
c) support the peaceful resolution of conflicts
d) be working towards the enhancement of democracy and social justice
as well as :
a) be a recognised or constituted organisation; network; association; union; academic grouping; or faculty/department of a higher education institution
b) operate at sub-national, national, sub-regional, regional or international level
c) have a clear governance structure.
Please note that confirmed members of Organising Partners are automatically eligible to be a member of the EASG. If at any point an organisation’s membership of one of the OPs lapses, the organisation will need to reapply for membership of the EASG independently.
The Organising Partners will determine eligibility of applicants to the EASG if they are not a confirmed member of one of the OPs.
