C20 Education & Digital Transformation Summit

While the COVID-19 pandemic setback SDG4 (Quality Education), it brought about unprecedented advances in online educational technologies. Education can support the G20 goals of one earth, one family, and one future through collaboration and sharing knowledge across countries, including inaccessible areas, those ravaged by war or natural disasters, and gender-biased states. Education should be learner-centered, inclusive, and enhanced by recent human-centered innovations that respect cultural diversity, local languages, and learning abilities. Education with effective monitoring and feedback loops should be affordable and reach the last mile. The C20 India Chair has said, ‘Education should spread light within and outside, instill awareness, and strengthen the deep bond between the student and his nation, the world, his fellow human beings and other creatures, Nature and God.’ The WG will study the wisdom of our combined world heritage, understand diversity, and the philosophy of indigenous populations, distill their essential commonalities to promote harmony and compassion and incorporate them into education. The WG will study and recommend skill development and education models that are equitable and accessible for underdeveloped, developing, and emerging economies and the implications for funding.

The WG will deliberate on the impact of digitalization on society and the environment. Learning from Digital India, a Digital World model can bring socio-economic transformation and support the global fight against poverty through the digital delivery of services, digital infrastructure creation, and digital literacies. Digitalizing the economy, digital identity, and digital payment systems can provide sustainable work opportunities and help services directly reach the beneficiary. Digital Transformation for an interconnected world should be inclusive and accessible, reduce the digital divide and inequality, consider child protection, and provide access to support disabilities. An inclusive Digital architecture based on open and interoperable principles can redefine digital boundaries and scale globally. Digital Transformation can promote and preserve culture, provide livelihood opportunities, and address disability, health, eGovernance, and services. The WG will study models for digitization, the use of digital measuring tools, gathering data for development, and emerging technologies for a Digital World. The policy recommendations in Education and Digital Transformation will consider global challenges, best practices, funding implications, and measuring the translation to policy change and outcomes at the Global and country level.

Our Inspiration

Knowledge is like a river. Its nature is to flow to all corners of the world and nourish the culture there. By sharing knowledge and experiences, we can prevent the beautiful flower that is this world from wilting. By bringing together diverse streams of knowledge, we can create a magnificent river. May this great river of knowledge flow to caress the countries and communities of the world. May it overflow the borders between people and countries. May it impart the water of life to all of humanity, and thus nurture the blooming of culture throughout the world.
Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi ❤️
