UNESCO - Futures of Education Initiative

Session Date: 15 June 2020 at 16:00 CEST


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.

This session will include a brief overview of the initiative and a discussion of important dimensions of change, particularly as Covid-19 has disrupted education around the globe and is reshaping our world. The speaker will share insights and ideas being developed within this UNESCO initiative. During—or in advance of the session—participants are invited to contribute their views on the futures of education via this one-minute survey so as to facilitate a discussion of solutions that need to be designed and actions that need to be taken.
