3rd World Conference on Transformative Education

April 4 - April 6

Most of the current education systems are far removed from the socioeconomic and political realities of the Americas. They are the legacies of European colonial rules that are antiquated, even in Europe, and can neither effectively solve current problems in the Americas nor help speed up its socioeconomic growth  and ensure its political stability. There is, therefore, a need to foster an inclusive and equitable society, moving away from educating children just for basic literacy and numeracy skills, to providing them world-class education for interconnected competitive global economies. Such a move will require a quasi-volte-face shift in how we rethink school curriculum, pedagogy, leadership, and research.

UP Executive Director Lindsey Halman, Program Director Jackie Verley, and Youth Program Specialist Maisie Franke will present a workshop on youth-adult partnership at the conference.
