 UNESCO’s new Futures of Education initiative aims to rethink how knowledge and learning can shape the future of humanity and the planet. Looking to 2050 and beyond the initiative seeks to spark the conversation across the globe in order to reimagine how education can contribute to the global common good.

The initiative was launched on 25th September 2019, at the United Nations General Assembly, in New York (United States). In her remarks, H.E Ms. Sahle-Work Zewde, President of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, also Chair of the International Commission on the Futures of Education insisted on the inclusive process of the initiative, noting “in our day and age, no longer do we allow the future of the planet to be dictated from one location. Futures must be locally and democratically envisioned.”
