The Incheon Declarationof World Education Forum convened in Republic of Korea in 2015 gestures the commitment of international community to accomplish the forth Sustainable Development Goal (SDG 4), quality of education. This observes a global paradigm change in education policy and confirms the needs for continuous global education efforts against the new and old dilemma to reach sustainable future of everyone. Accomplishing the SDG-4 requires all countries to expand the focus from schooling to lifelong learning, making adult and continuing education including higher education, technical and vocational education part of the spectrum, and embraced by the global endeavours to achieve sustainability. The upcoming global education policy addresses the lifelong learning as key concepts to promote inclusive, equitable, just, and high quality education toward 2030. Each of the countries is to promote lifelong learning to strengthen all types and levels of education starting from pre- to post-school system that consists of vocational/technical, professional, and higher education, furnishing the same values to both formal and adult & continuing educational approaches.
