The future of learning will be a significant factor in shaping the future of humanity and our planet. As our awareness of the enormity of global challenges increases, it is vital to take time to consider how best to equip ourselves, and future generations, to tackle these difficulties and build a better world. What do we need to know, and how should we learn it? This Nobel Prize Dialogue will seek answers to those questions and more.
What constitutes an ‘education’? This question lies at the heart of the dialogue and will be considered from various angles: what do we need to know, is there an optimal balance between fundamental and applied knowledge, how does education differ around the world today and should we be adapting learning to meet future needs?
Technology is changing both the practice and focus of education. What does the rapidly developing relationship between technology and learning mean for the way we will learn in the future, and do the demands placed on us by the technologies that surround us threaten to undermine our ability to learn?
Access to education is a basic human right but how can we ensure a more equitable provision of resources, both between and within nations? What part does gender play in determining educational status and, given this meeting’s particular focus on Science and Technology, what do we need to do to promote and increase diversity across STEM subjects?
