The new global report bases its proposal on the need to establish a new social contract for education, based on a shared vision of the public purpose of education. This social contract is based on two founding principles: the right to quality education for all and throughout life, and the understanding that education as a collective, public task, and as a common good, must contribute effectively to the realisation of sustainable, just and peaceful futures.
Furthermore, the report, in the face of the current global challenges facing humanity, identifies the emerging disruptions with the most significant implication on education: the planet and climate change (planet), democratic and human rights regression, frenetic technological development and the relationship with Artificial Intelligence. Therefore, it makes 5 proposals for renewing education where, among others, it highlights the cooperative and collaborative nature that education and the teaching profession should have, as well as the emphasis that should be placed on ecological, intercultural and interdisciplinary learning, which helps students to access and produce knowledge, and at the same time develop their ability to criticise and apply it, and highlights the role that schools and educational ecosystems should play to become “models of the futures to which we aspire”. Finally, the report ends with 2 calls to action: a call for research and innovation and a call for global solidarity and international cooperation, to engage everyone in a social dialogue, to rethink and act together, and to reimagine our futures together.
