18 January: Sapienza University of Rome to host seminar on UNESCO's Futures of Education report


On Wednesday 18th January 2023, the Sapienza University of Rome will host a seminar organised by the Network of Italian UNESCO Chairs (ReCUI) entitled A New Social Contract for Education: Perspectives Reflections Issues.

The initiative constitutes the launch event of ReCUI's Webinar Cycle 2023, which will be devoted to the examination of the themes presented in the latest UNESCO Report "Reimagining our futures together: A new social contract for education" (2021).

In order to cope with today’s complex scenarios, the strategy adopted by UNESCO re-proposes and re-interprets the issue of the 'social contract' as a means of addressing the challenges facing education today and in the future. In the perspective of the 'new social contract', education must be understood as a common good, which is progressively affirmed in widespread practices and consolidated in democratic institutions.

This meeting is designed to begin reflection and dialogue on how to outline a critical approach to education, based on the UNESCO Report on the Futures of Education. The event, which will be held in English, will take place on Wednesday 18th January 2023 at 2.00 p.m. in the Aula Acquario of the Faculty of Economics, Sapienza University of Rome (Via Castro Laurenziano, 9).

An online connection has also been set up to enable remote participation (https://meet.google.com/qmq-xhft-rim).

The programme for the seminar is available here.
