Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.
Education liberates the intellect, unlocks the imagination and is fundamental for self-respect. It is the key to prosperity and opens a world of opportunities, making it possible for each of us to contribute to a progressive, healthy society. Goal 4 is about ensuring access for all along all educational levels and ensuring relevant skills for sustainable development and financial success.

Experiential learning is one of the most effective approaches to help students transition from an academic setting to the workplace. In 2020, York launched C4: The Cross-Campus Capstone Classroom, an innovative program open to all York students entering the last part of their degree. Under the leadership of Danielle Robinson (AMPD) and Franz Newland (Lassonde), C4 provides students with an opportunity to work on inter-disciplinary teams focusing on real-world challenges. In the process, students develop and hone meaningful skills that set them apart in the job market and align with the UN SDGs. Learn more here.
