The changing world has compelled education to also change according to the needs and demands of the societies. The transformation of societies calls for new forms of education that are able to foster the competencies that social forces need for today and tomorrow.
Education can no longer remain concentrated on literacy and numeracy skills, but rather it has to explore new learning environments and approaches to realise greater social justice, equality and global solidarity.
Numerous conflicts that exist in today’s world point to the lack of mutual respect, understanding and consideration from individuals as members of societies, and also between societies.
Hence, it is timely that there would be an occasion for scholars, educators and the like, from various parts of the world to come and gather, such as in the form of this conference.
The conference would be an appropriate platform to engage in discourses that would help to clarify the kind of education that would promote global peace, and exchange experiences that help to progress towards that aim.
