(FREE WEBINAR - May 7th): Why education and global competence will be key for the success of the SDGs
SDG4 focuses on quality education for all and calls for sweeping action to expand learning opportunities and improve the quality of education so that all children & adults acquire the knowledge and skills to thrive.
Prof Dr. Dirk Van Damme will provide during this keynote an update on where we are, ten years before the target year 2030, as education has a much larger role to play. We have to think harder about the kind of knowledge, skills, attitudes and values that we need to develop in order to prepare children and adults for the world of tomorrow. Global challenges of climate change and sustainable growth, but also digitalization, migration, innovation and peace will require global competence. The keynote will expand on the concept of global competence and explain why and how it has been integrated in the PISA 2018 assessment.
Registration, free of charge, is mandatory: http://globaleducation.be/webinar/
The conference is organised by Annoncer la Couleur, Kruit and GENE, the European Network of ECM.
NOTE: This keynote will be given in English. Simultaneous translation in French will be available.
