"The role of Open Educational Resources (OER) in the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4 was a central focus of the second Congress on OER, held in Ljubljana, Slovenia, from18-20 September. The conference, with the theme of “OER for Inclusive and Equitable Quality Education: From Commitment to Action”, was organised jointly by UNESCO and the government of Slovenia. In side events and on the main panel, representatives of Education International (EI) and its member organisations in New Zealand, Canada, and Argentina highlighted the fact that quality education cannot ignore the importance of quality resources and their availability to educators in order to deliver quality teaching. They also addressed the supports needed for teachers to implement and develop OER policies."
