Reflections on the UNESCO 2021 Report"

During the next UNESCO General Conference in November 2021, the report Reimagining our futures together: A new social contract for education will be released. This report is in line with Learning to be (1972) and Education: a treasure within (1996). Having been the result of an extensive consultation process, involving about a million people around the world, this report assumes itself as an invitation to educators around the world to discuss and develop experiences together. It is therefore worth reviewing its ideas and impact about six months after its official release.
