These guidelines seek to support countries to convene inclusive national consultations in advance of the September 2022 Transforming Education Summit. They recognize that education systems in every country are unique and shaped by the local context. They recognize also that many countries have pre-existing strategic plans or ongoing education policy processes. Yet both the pandemic and the ongoing global learning crises demonstrate that, without a solid commitment to transform education, the goals established in every country and in the 2030 Agenda, will not be reached. Countries are therefore encouraged to view these guidelines as a support tool to promote a national consultation process that is both responsive to their own unique circumstances and capable of reimagining the futures of education.
