Beyond the Four Pillars: Truth and Wisdom for Transformation towards Sustainability
Joy de Leo, President UNESCO-APNIEVE Australia

Much has changed since Jacques Delors chaired the UNESCO Commission on Education for the 21st Century. The challenges for educators and an emerging generation of leaders in all fields are greater than ever before, as we face the multiple spectres of climate change, increasing conflict, growing disparity of wealth and the threat of mass extinctions. Change and reform in education are no longer enough to prepare the new generation for solving these multiple complex and life threatening issues. In the words of Sheldon Shaeffer, we need a fifth pillar in order to Learn to Transform our world for sustainability. But what does this mean and how does it look in practice? Perhaps learning for Transformation is embedded within a renewed approach to an integration of the existing four pillars: Learning to Know, Learning to Be, Learning to Live Together, Learning to Do. The creation of new knowledge must go hand in hand with the creation of meaning, mediated by experience and wise application, for the exploration of truth and discovery of innovative and sustainable approaches to development. This paper discusses a Model of “Beyond the Four Pillars for Transformation towards Sustainability” and describes how these four pillars can guide us in Education for Sustainable Development.
