UNESCO has just launched a global initiative to reimagine how knowledge and learning can shape the future of humanity and the planet.
UNESCO’s Futures of Education initiative aims to rethink education and shape the future. The initiative is catalyzing a global debate on how knowledge, education and learning need to be reimagined in a world of increasing complexity, uncertainty, and precarity.
The Director–General of UNESCO has convened an independent International Commission to work under the leadership of the President of Ethiopia, Her Excellency President Sahle-Work Zewde, and develop a global report on the Futures of Education. The members of the commission are thought-leaders from the worlds of politics, academia, the arts, science, business, and education. The commission will carefully consider inputs received through the consultation processes. This collective intelligence will be reflected in the global report and other knowledge products connected with the initiative.
The Futures of Education: Learning to Become initiative is about sparking conversations on how knowledge and learning can shape the future of humanity and the planet. Inputs from individuals, networks, and organizations will inform the work of the International Commission and shape the global debate.
