5th International Conference on Future Education

Global Leadership Challenges in Higher Education for
Effective Multilateralism & Sustainable Human Security


December 6 to 8, 2021 / Online

It’s time to think globally about the future of education.

Education is humanity’s most powerful instrument for conscious social evolution. The actions called for in the UN Secretary General’s new report Our Common Agenda can only be successful if implemented globally in a timely manner supported by radical advances in global higher education. Education is an essential catalyst for social transformation. A new paradigm in education is needed to accelerate global systems change founded on a multidimensional, multistakeholder approach at all levels. Building on insights from the UN-WAAS project on Global Leadership for the 21st Century, this conference will address the challenges and opportunities in higher education today to identify catalytic strategies to support strengthening of multilateralism, implementation of 17 SDGs, and Sustainable Human Security for All.
