Views on the futures of education from around the world

The Futures of Education initiative is sparking conversations on how knowledge and learning can shape the future of humanity and the planet. How should education be re-thought in the light of the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century? UNESCO has received views from around the world and we invite you to submit your own ideas as well.  These written contributions are shared with the International Commission on the Futures of Education and will help to shape the upcoming global report (to be released in late 2021).  Take a moment to examine the written submissions yourself – find inspiration, be challenged, and join the global discussion on the futures of education!
