Education in a post-COVID world: Nine ideas for public action
COVID-19 pandemic has severely hit the every sector of society including education of 1.5 billion students throughout the world and it has shined a harsh light on the vulnerabilities and challenges humanity faces. In this context, International Commission on Futures of Education UNESCO has prepared a report entitled “Education in a post-COVID world: Nine ideas for public action”. The report presents nine key ideas for navigating through the COVID-19 crisis and its aftermath.
It is evident that we cannot return to the world as it was before. One of the strongest messages in the report is that our common humanity necessitates global solidarity. We cannot accept the levels of inequality that have been permitted to emerge on our shared planet. It is particularly important that the world supports developing countries with investment in 21st century education infrastructures; this will require the mobilization of resources and support from developed countries, in particular with debt cancellation, restructuring, and new financing.
