A new generation of change makers is transforming our world. We see change from new and unexpected sources, shaped by new ideas and new voices. The power to influence others no longer lies exclusively in the hands of few individuals.
Through the theme of the Global Education & Skills Forum 2019 "Who is changing the world?" come and meet those who are achieving prolific change. It brings together the world’s best teachers to share their innovative practices, those working in (and with) governments to explore complex international education issues, insights from global education researchers, start-ups, technologists, entrepreneurs and funders designing future classrooms, today.Dubai, United Arab Emirates
During its “Development Decade” of the 1960s, the UN advocated education as a driver of economic growth. But, over the past fifty years, questions have been asked with increasing urgency about what kind of development is promulgated through literacy, skills training, and formal schooling. What is the longer term cost of an education that promises – and sometimes delivers – productivity, industrialization, modernity and consumption? Who pays this price? What are the larger costs? And with what ultimate consequence for the planet?
Such questions prompt the theme of the 63rd annual meeting of the Comparative and International Education Society: Education for Sustainability. Our 2019 theme connects the CIES with a reconsideration of human progress – by scholars, governments, corporations, international agencies, and civil society at the grassroots level. This reconsideration is also reflected in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development adopted by UN member states.San Francisco, USA
