With some 120 participants representing UN Member States, UN agencies, multilateral organizations, civil society organizations, academia, businesses, etc., the event will highlight the changes that signal the emergence of a new global context for learning which in turn has vital implications for educational governance. The principle of public good, which has long guided education policy, is now increasingly under strain and needs to be re-contextualized.

Rethinking Education

We are living in a world characterized by change, complexity and paradox. These changes signal the emergence of a new global context for learning that has vital implications for education. It requires that we revisit the purpose of education and the organization of learning. The complexity of today’s world requires a comprehensive approach to education policy embedded in a better understanding of the way in which knowledge is created, controlled, disseminated, acquired, validated and used. It also requires further development of the ethical principles that govern education and knowledge as common goods.

Towards a global common good?

 

Recognizing the emergence of a new global context of learning the Director-General of UNESCO established a Senior Experts Group to rethink education in a changing world. The result of the work of the group is presented in Rethinking Education: Towards a global common good? (2015). In the spirit of the landmark publication Learning: The treasure within (UNESCO 1996), the report of the Senior Experts Group reconsiders the purpose of education and the principles that govern education and knowledge as common goods. The publication is intended a call for policy dialogue and as a platform for research on the future of learning.
