Session Abstract

Transformative education is education that fosters engaged, active and critical learners and builds constructive and democratic approaches to difference. Target 4.7 of the Sustainable Development Goals describes education as transformative when it is value-based and designed to promote global citizenship, sustainable development, human rights, gender equality, peace and appreciation of cultural diversity. 

In this participatory session, organized by Bridge 47, we will explore what role transformative education can play in responding to the global challenges, risks and trends of the future, and what capacities, skills and knowledge are needed to cope with the changing realities. We will discuss what role transformative education, as captured in SDG Target 4.7, plays in preparing us to cope with and respond to our new realities. Together we will look for steps we can already take now in order to help us better prepare for the future.
