Estamos en un momento crucial para abordar uno de los mayores desafíos de nuestro tiempo: el cambio climático. El cambio climático plantea graves riesgos para todas las sociedades del mundo. Sin embargo, estos riesgos se distribuyen de manera desigual y afectan de manera desproporcionada a los grupos más vulnerables, como los pueblos indígenas, las comunidades locales y los habitantes de las zonas rurales y territorios insulares.

Este webinar fue el primero de una serie de cuatro diálogos en línea coorganizados por la Oficina Regional de Educación de la UNESCO para América Latina y el Caribe y la Fundación Santillana, y comenzó con el tema Sostenibilidad humana. y planetario. Para abordar este importante tema, participaron en el debate varios panelistas, entre ellos la Sra. Tarcila Rivera Zea, Directora Ejecutiva del Centro de Culturas Indígenas del Perú y miembro de la Comisión Internacional sobre el Futuro de la Educación; La Sra. Lola Huete Machado, directora de Planet Future (diario El País); Bernardo Toro, filósofo y asesor de la presidencia de la Fundación Avina, y Enrique Leff, del Instituto de Investigación sociales UNAM.

How to promote citizenship and participation from and through education? How can education encourage the participation of students and other members of the school community? Brazilian educator Anísio Teixeira (1900-1971), who celebrated his 120th birthday in July this year, recalled that the school is a place where one lives: it is at school that the first steps are taken to build citizenship, by participating in activities that require dialogue, respect for differences and rules of coexistence. 

This webinar is the second one of a series of four online dialogues co-organized with UNESCO Brasília, the UNESCO Regional Bureau for Education in Latin America and the Caribbean, and Fundación Santillana. Four panelists tackled this important matter during the webinar: Antonio Nóvoa – Ph.D. in Education, Member of the International Committee on the Futures of Education; Gina Vieira Ponte de Albuquerque – Teacher in Basic Education from Education Secretariat of Federal District; Diego Caligari – Representing Civil Society; Neca Setubal – Sociologist, GIFE President (a group of Foundations, Institutes, and private organizations) and, Tide Setubal Foundation ( Educational foundation).

What role does education play in assuming collective and collaborative responsibility in relation to ecology and the promotion of sustainable living on the planet? How can human capacities be directed towards improving the quality of human life, while respecting the ecosystems that sustain them? To these general issues, it is necessary to add the specific perspective of Brazil, a continental country and responsible for one of the largest and most important forests on the planet, composed of a wide ethnic and cultural diversity.

This webinar, focusing on Human and Planetary Sustainability, is the first one of a series of four online dialogues co-organized with UNESCO Brasília, the UNESCO Regional Bureau for Education in Latin America and the Caribbean, and Fundación Santillana. Cristovam Buarque, Emeritus Professor at the University of Brasília and member of the International Commission, facilitated the discussion between Célia Xacriabá, indigenous teacher and activist; Marina Silva, teacher, environmentalist and politician; and Ricardo Abramovay, sociologist and professor of the Environmental Science program.

Las repercusiones y consecuencias producidas por la pandemia global han puesto de relieve la necesidad cada vez más apremiante de repensar los futuros probables, posibles y alternativos que podría enfrentar la humanidad, incluido el futuro de la educación.

Este webinar, coorganizado con la Oficina Regional de Educación para América Latina y el Caribe de la UNESCO y la Fundación Santillana, abordó temas relacionados con la importancia y relevancia de la educación formal que se imparte en el entorno escolar tradicional, la participación de padres, madres y comunidades, y su cambio durante la pandemia de salud, el futuro de la educación a distancia y su papel en la transformación de la educación y en la lucha contra las crecientes desigualdades en las oportunidades educativas.

Tres miembros de la Comisión Internacional sobre Los futuro de la educación iniciaron la conversación con más de 800 asistentes: Elisa Guerra, fundadora del Colegio Valle de Filadelfia en México; Tarcila Rivera, Directora Ejecutiva del Centro de Culturas Indígenas del Perú; y Antonio Nóvoa, actual embajador de Portugal ante la UNESCO.

The fact that we live in a world of increasing complexity, uncertainty, and precarity has become undeniably evident because of the COVID-19 crisis.  Events around the globe are being shifted online, including a 24 March keynote panel that was to be held at the Comparative and International Education Society’s (CIES) annual conference in Miami.

Four members of the International Commission on the Futures of Education took part in the discussion with the audience: Arjun Appadurai, Professor, New York University, and Hertie School (Germany); Fernando M. Reimers, Professor, Harvard Graduate School of Education (USA); Karen Mundy, Professor, Ontario Institute for the Study of Education (Canada) and António Nóvoa, Ambassador of Portugal to UNESCO.

Though all four panelists spoke at length about the dangers and uncertainties that the current global health crisis presents, there was also firm agreement that this is a potent moment of great opportunity as well.
