Beyond 2015 - Rethinking Learning in a Changing World

UNESCO Bangkok will organize a high-level expert meeting on ‘Beyond 2015 - Rethinking Learning in a Changing World’ on 26 – 28 November 2012 at the Imperial Queen's Park Hotel, Bangkok, Thailand with support from the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT).

The 3-days meeting builds on the outcomes of the meeting: “Towards EFA 2015 and Beyond – Shaping a New Vision for Education” held by UNESCO Bangkok in May 2012. Based on the growing recognition of learning being one of the core areas of emphasis for future education as well as in the global discussions on the role of education in post-2015 agendas, the meeting will discuss cutting-edge insights on learning from the perspectives of educationalists, learning scientists and economists as well as learning requirements for the future. 

Honorary guests to attend the meeting include UNESCO Assistant Director-General for Education, Dr Qian Tang; Executive Member of the Council of Policy on Science and Technology, Cabinet Office of Japanese Government, Dr Masuo Aizawa; Bangladesh Joint Secretary of the Ministry of Education, Dr Aruna Biswas; OECD Head of the Centre for Education Research and Innovation, Dr Dirk van Damme; and Dean of the Harvard Graduate School of Education, Prof Kathleen McCartney. 

It will develop recommendations on possible responses to these requirements and what may be required to build effective learning systems in a life-long learning perspective. The findings of the meeting will also support furthering regional and international work towards developing a new vision of education and the post-2015 development agenda.  Please find below the meeting key documents:
