Type of Event:
In 1996, the UNESCO International Commission on Education for the 21st Century released an inspirational report Learning: The Treasure Within which presented a vision of education based on four pillars of learning: learning to live together, learning to know, learning to do and learning to be. The report emphasized that the survival of humanity is highly dependent on learning how to live together, beginning by understanding and accepting other people and their history, cultures, traditions and values. <br/>Since the Delors report, the world has changed in many ways. Much has been accomplished, but a lot more needs to be done to translate the idealistic vision of education into actions on the ground. The clamour for education to foster more humanistic and sustainable lifestyles has highlighted a need to better understand how education systems can concretely bridge theories and practices.
