As part of the Our Common Agenda initiative, the UN Secretary-General is convening a Transforming Education Summit (TES) for September 2022 in New York. This summit seeks to mobilize political ambition, action, solutions and solidarity to transform education.
UNESCO's Reimagining our futures together: A new social contract for education report is named as the key reference document for this global project to recover from COVID's educational disruptions, revitalize national and global efforts to achieve SDG-4, and to reimagine education systems for the world of today and tomorrow.
National consultations that aim at developing a shared vision, commitment, and alignment of action across constituencies are one of the key TES workstreams. The Reimagining our futures together report is proposed as a framework for examining how education systems need to change to better serve learners and societies into the future.
A series of briefing notes have been prepared in alignment with the summit's five action tracks:
- Inclusive, equitable, safe and healthy schools
- Learning and skills for life, work and sustainable development
- Teachers, teaching and the teaching profession
- Digital learning and transformation
- Financing of education
Guidelines for national consultations may be consulted here.
