Education for All: After Class Talk #7
Education enriches our brains with new and valuable information and improves our ability to think, analyze, and process the world around us. Education is essential because it broadens our knowledge, and this knowledge then opens our minds to new perspectives, ideas, beliefs, and cultures.
After Class Talk #7 is back with an insightful topic on Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) #4: Quality Education. Entitled “Education for All”, this event was held on Tuesday, September 28th 2021 at 3.30 pm via zoom meeting. Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG 4) is the educational goal. It aims to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. Simply, It’s Education for All.
Education for All Implementation
The sentence Education for All is not just a tagline. In its implementation, equal distribution of the quality of education in Indonesia is a must. No need to go far in remote areas, Bandung still has areas that need special attention in the field of education. We need to support each other to help the government realize this educational alignment. This Education for All event invites young people who are concerned about education.
Harti Tsaeni from ODESA Indonesia and Fariz Aulia from Malala Project AIESEC shared their story in realizing Education for All in our closest environment, Bandung. The spirit of Education for All is realized by ODESA Indonesia in one of their programs entitled SAMIN (Saturday Sunday School). This program aims to provide the best quality education for children in rural areas through Saturday-Sunday lessons. While AIESEC, the spirit of Education for All is realized in a 6-week program in rural areas. The Education for All AEISEC program is summarized in the Malala Project – consists of a series of events including teaching and crowd-funding.
The inspirational presentations from Harti Tsaeni and Fariz Aulia lead us to the conclusion that Education for All will not only be a discourse. Equitable quality of education in Indonesia can be done as soon as possible with the good hands of young Indonesians. The Education for All event was closed with a Kahoot game and an active question and answer session from the participants.
