In reflection to global problems, the United Nations has set up 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to handle climate change and many other related issues. The UN’s Agenda has already been adopted by more than 150 countries in the world and the European Union is also committed to reach these goals by 2030. Among the goals relating to the social, economic and environmental aspects of sustainability is quality education (SDG 4), which is in the focus of this research, with special regard to Hungary. Sustainable goals can be achieved by providing inclusive and quality education as well as lifelong learning opportunities. According to statistical figures, out of the 17 goals the European Union made its second-best progress in the field of education during the shortterm period that was between 2011-2016 and 2012-2017. The seven European Union indicators of SDG 4 are the following: early leavers from education and training; tertiary educational attainment; participation in early childhood education; underachievement in reading, maths or science; employment rates of recent graduates; adult participation in learning; and young people neither in employment nor in education and training (NEET).
