Convened in 2019, OSW is a broad and growing network of nearly 300 organisations including universities, INGOs and local NGOs, teacher and student unions, subject associations and UNICEF. It is one of the largest and most diverse coalitions working on supporting the successful implimentation of SDG4.7 in the Education Act in England.
All share a common vision based on the educational themes of SDG 4.7 and recognise that how we educate is as important as what we educate about. Co-chaired by CoDEC and SEEd, OSW is a directed network with distributed organisation involving a dynamic governance structure. In 2021, the network is focussing on the first two of its objectives: shifting the narrative on the purpose of education and sharing evidence about successful approaches to SDG 4.7.
