Transforming Education Summit

The Transforming Education Summit is a response to a global crisis in education – one of equity and inclusion, quality and relevance. Often slow and unseen, this crisis is having a devastating impact on the futures of children and youth worldwide. That’s why Brahma Kumaris made presence in this Summit to gain an understanding of this unique opportunity to elevate education to the top of the global political agenda and to mobilize action, ambition, solidarity and solutions to recover pandemic-related learning losses and sow the seeds to transform education in a rapidly changing world.
The first day: Mobilization Day, we appreciated some key aspects, through powerful panels with young and enthusiastic leaders, regarding the awareness of change within education systems:
– A shared vision for education where every student is an empowered person to be themselves;
– Climate action will not change unless we change education;
– Give hope through voice & action, activation & movement;
– Young people is at the center of transforming education;
– The importance of the dialogue in the education structure;
– Youth are the co-creators of solutions
– Education should be an instrument for cooperation and solidarity
The second day: Solution Day, still with a #vibe of courage and change we recognize some highlighted points during the sessions:
– From consultation to co-creation of solutions;
  ACTION TRACKS (Thematic Action Tracks are key levers to transform education by focusing on specific areas that need attention) revised and reflected:
 I. Inclusive, equitable, safe and healthy schools –> Nourish healthy mindsets in students and teachers.
 II. Learning and skills for life, work and sustainable development –> Fundamental learning, values-skills-based-learning.
 III. Teachers, teaching and the teaching profession –> Respect, trust and support.
 IV. Digital learning and transformation –> Connectivity, content, capacities. Digital learning has to be complementary to in-class learning, it can be a catalyst to change.
 V. Financing of education –> The intention is there, but the international education system is blocked.
Finally, the remarkable input from the youth to the whole audience was that everyone has said nice and powerful things, but it is time to make the change, to take action, to take responsibility, and most importantly integrate the motivating energy, skills and attitude of the youth into the mechanism of decision-making processes.
