Reimagining Our Futures Together upholds the tradition of the major UNESCO reports that have already structured education policies throughout the world in the past. The Faure report, Learning to be, in 1972, and the Delors report, Learning: The Treasure Within, in 1996, have become benchmarks in the debate on learning. This third document presents a lucid assessment of the challenges confronting education today.
Faced with the rapid changes in our environment, a change of direction is needed. We need to devote more importance to ecology; to provide students with the critical tools to detect misinformation, prejudices, and preconceived ideas; to strengthen teamwork, and to improve the professionalization of teachers. Beyond these imperatives, we must also rethink the multiple interdependencies, the links between generations and between cultures, and our relationship with living beings, to establish a new social contract for education.
