Educational Challenges in a Changing World

Plenary session

Schedule: 09.00 - 10.30 (UTC+3h)

Location: Theater

Moderated by: Ms. Isabelle Kumar

The two landmark UNESCO publications, “Learning to Be” (or what is often referred to as the “Faure Report”), and “Learning: the Treasure Within” (or the “Delors report”), have been key references for international educational development. They have been influential in promoting an integrated and humanistic vision of lifelong learning supported by four pillars: learning to be, to know, to do, and to live together. As the international community takes stock of new developments and educational realities in the approach of the 2015 deadline for the Millennium Development Goals, it is timely to revisit the four pillars. This would also help to inform the current debates on the post-2015 international development and education agendas.

Pensez vous qu'on peut parvenir à réduire la disparité fille/garçon dans l'enseignement supérieur dans les pays au Sud du Sahara dans la mesure où les pesanteurs sociaux sont importants?
Education is not only for a career but for the Good Life. In a letter to the New York Times in 1952 Einstein proposed a holistic type of education that includes the Humanities. The Core curriculum - a standard model of education in the USA - serves that purpose well. But How do we convince the rest of the world of the importance of this type of Education that will not only prepare students for a career but for life as well as prepare them to be active and contributing citizens in their country?
