Abstract: Publisher's description: The outcome of a three-year process of consultation by a distinguished panel chaired by Jacques Delors, this report considers the requirements for an education for the twenty-first century capable of tapping and nurturing the rich potential for learning inherent in every individual. Education is viewed firstly in its social setting in the light of the challenges of global interdependence, enhanced democratic participation and sustainable development. The report goes on to define the four pillars of learning to live together - and to review the task of formal and nonformal education in the context of the learning society. Emphasis is placed on the central role of teachers, as well as on the importance of using the new information and communication technologies to maximum effect. The report also considers the political dimension of educational choice and discusses the role of international co-operation. A series of pointers and recommendations complete a document that is establishing itself as required reading for anyone with a profesional or informed interest in educational matters.
