FP Virtual Dialogue: Empowering Leaders for a Global Future
Transforming education to meet 21st century challenges & opportunities
Foreign Policy hosted a thought-provoking conversation about reimagining education to harness today’s resources and meet tomorrow’s challenges. This dialogue was held in partnership with Arizona State University, ranked by U.S. News & World Report as the #1 most innovative school in the U.S. for six years in a row and by Times Higher Ed as #1 in UN SDG impact.
We convened a high caliber panel of visionaries and thought leaders who are working to empower the next generation of global leaders. As the world continues to grapple with the fallout of COVID-19, the pandemic has served as an urgent warning that we are approaching tipping points across our societies, economies and ecosystem: With only 10 years to reach the Sustainable Development Goals, the UN has called for a decade of action, and the progress that must be achieved will be defining for humanity’s long term future.
Education is key to empowering those who will shape that future, but to achieve that change, education itself must be transformed and broadened to support discovery and lifelong learning and enable transdisciplinary approaches in partnership with industry, policymakers and communities.
