This report aims to help the next generation learn the right things in the right way. It begins by setting out why a learning revolution is needed, based on interviews with thinkers, educators, learners and policy makers. It then explores the opportunities and ideas that could be a basis for the coalitions needed to deliver change. It concludes by setting out nine global learning goals, across knowledge, skills and character to help deliver the transformation of learning.

A hard-hitting report into the impact of humans on nature shows that nearly one million species risk becoming extinct within decades, while current efforts to conserve the earth’s resources will likely fail without radical action, UN biodiversity experts said on Monday  6 May 2019.

"Following the adoption of this historic report, no one will be able to claim that they did not know," the UNESCO head said.

In times of increasing extremism, xenophobia, violence, and radicalisation, it becomes crucial to build the capacity of education personnel, school leaders and education employers, to promote the fundamental values of freedom, democracy, tolerance, equality, human rights and solidarity, through education. Teaching and learning about democratic citizenship, human rights and EU common values is crucial for countering the negative forces of our time and building social inclusion in diverse educational contexts and learning environments. The power of education in this sense is unique and multiple: unique because there is no other environment or tool that touches families, social groups, communities and societies as a whole; multiple because where education is denied, other rights are denied, where it is upheld, other rights prosper.

This MOOC aims to foster the promotion of inclusive education, democratic citizenship and human rights through the transfer of knowledge about the definitions, frameworks and content of Human Rights Education as well as the analysis of existing and innovative practices on teaching styles, approaches and methods.

Read more and register for free before 19 May 2019.

Great news! The "future plan" for ESD: "Education for Sustainable Development beyond 2019" was approved and adopted at the 206th session of UNESCO's Executive Board. The document was developed after a long participatory process enganging states representatives and stakeholders relevant with ESD from all over the workd in various workshops and meetings and after running an online open consultation process last autumn. The paper provides the goals, the proposed approach, an implementation framework as well as some administrative implication for the application and monitoring of ESD in the countries fully in line with the SDGs and particulalry the SDG 4.7 and Agenda 2030. It covers the period of 2020-2030 and is available at the link:
