As a result, enhancing the ability of people on a global scale, including communities and societies, to form well-informed opinions and support sustainable development. Within the context of the traditional educational system, which focuses on equipping students with the knowledge and skills they need to be successful in the working world, it integrates central tenets of education for sustainable development, such as the reduction of poverty, the protection of human rights, health and the environment, and climate change. Introduction By giving individuals more agency and making sure everyone is included, we can bring about a reduction in the inequality that exists in our society. In spite of the significant progress that has been made since the year 2000 in terms of lifting people out of poverty, inequalities and large disparities still exist in terms of income and wealth, as well as in terms of access to food, healthcare, education, land, clean water, and other resources that are necessary for people to live a life that is both full and dignified. Some society groups, such as those living in rural regions, women, young people, persons with disabilities, indigenous people, and others, have repeatedly concentrated near the bottom of distributions.
