The high-level session with ministers of education and experts will feature the emerging global trends in education.

The most fundamental aim of education, as ancient as the history of humanity, is to promote the gaining of knowledge, values and skills by students, and to contribute to their betterment in terms of thoughts, emotions and behavior. Indeed, the sustainability of the world’s future is directly linked to the existence of qualified ‘education systems’ and ‘educated individuals’.

Educational paradigms underwent certain changes in our time, which gave rise to new definitions and concepts related to education. Indeed, 21st-century skills have been categorized as Learning and Innovation, Digital Literacy, and Life and Career Skills. At this time, educational processes must be transformed in a way that allows them to support those paradigms. This session will therefore facilitate a discussion on the effects of ongoing changes and innovations on individuals, societies, and education systems in the age of digitalization.
