No Family Left Behind: Families and Local Authorities working together to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and to promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.

          In launching the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development the United Nations Member States and the Society as a whole recognized that the dignity of the individual is fundamental and the Agenda’s goals and targets should be met for all nations and people and for all segments of society.

          Leaving no one behind is the overarching principle and transforming the Agenda’s commitments into effective actions requires a precise understanding of the target population. Women, men, children, youth, older persons, persons with disability,people living with HIV, indigenous people, refugees, internally displaced persons and migrants, all of them have in common the fact that they belong to a Family living at Local Level.

          Supporting local authorities and families to implement the Agenda 2030 with all its 17 SDGs is an exceptional opportunity to achieve better community integration with the public management leading to renewed hope, harmony, jobs and growth, while ensuring sustainability.

          We are proud to announce that The World Family Summit 2019 highlighting the SDG 4 – Quality Education, linked with the SDG 11 – Sustainable Cities and Strong Communities and SDG 17 – Partnership for Development.

          Let’s welcome once again the opportunity in 2019 to consolidate our views, beliefs and work towards the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals with No Family Left Behind.
