NISSEM was selected by UNESCO to write one of 20 background papers that informs a global report by the Futures of Education Commission. Led by the President of Ethiopia, Her Excellency President Sahle-Work Zewde, the Commission looked to “reimagine how knowledge and learning can shape the future of humanity and the planet”. The Futures of Education: Learning to Become report will lay out an agenda for education policy dialogue and action at multiple levels. Watch the Futures of Education video here.
The background paper has been published by UNESCO and will be acknowledged in the final Futures of Education: Learning to Become report to be published in November 2021. In addition, NISSEM organized webinars with the Teacher’s College and UNESCO around this paper and two others.
