Creating the world we want to live in: Rethinking Education [#ReConf22]
This brief presentation explores the links between the Times Education Commission Report (June2022) and the chapter on Education in Creating the World We Want to Live In (Routledge 2021). Both say the current system is not fit for purpose in the 21st Century - neither for young people and their futures nor the health of the planet. To enable every child, young person and community to flourish we need creativity, agency, diversity, wellbeing as core school business and joy in learning. The presentation ends with a brief video about why we wrote the book. All children matter.
