Education for a Changing World | Info Session
Sitra is commencing a research project that will explore the intersection of sustainability, well-being and education for a globalised society on a changing planet.
What kind of society will we have to become? What kind of Earth will we learn to steward? What is the purpose of education? For societies facing imminent challenges, the purpose of education is often crystal clear: to enable the next generation to prosper. For societies that have achieved success, the utility of education is often less clear. Sitra is commencing a research project that will explore the intersection of sustainability, well-being and education for a globalised society on a changing planet.
The research will gather insights from multiple fields to help inform the global debate about the purpose and future of education as an essential public good. The primary research question is How do we enable students, schools and communities to become the building blocks of a new societal model organised around sustainable well-being?
