UNESCO’s international commission starts reflection on the futures of education – Join the global debate
Knowledge and learning are humanity’s greatest renewable resources. But are our current approaches to generating knowledge and spreading learning up to today’s challenges? How well do they prepare us for the challenges of tomorrow – and also to take advantage of tomorrow’s opportunities?
UNESCO’s International Commission on the Futures of Education held its first meeting on 28 and 29 January 2020 in Paris to take stock of the global situation in education today and what can be predicted for 2050 and beyond. The Commission also took on the harder task of imagining possible futures and beginning to explore what might need to be rethought and reinvented in the education landscape.
