transforming education in the global south: Toward 2050

The Global South is at a crossroads, facing a pressing educational crisis. 

The path to transformative education by 2050 is challenging but crucial. It calls for a concerted effort to realign education with its original purpose of holistic development, preparing individuals for jobs and with character for peacebuilding and meaningful contributions in a global values-centered community. The Global South, with its rich values, traditions, and strong interconnection of family and schools, stands as a significant player in igniting this transformation. The urgency to act is apparent to transform educators and students, focusing on the holistic transformation of people rather than exclusively on structures and systems.
