Manifesto for a Change in Education
The educational transformation that today's society needs is everyone's responsibility, and this time YOUTH MUST TAKE THE FLOOR. As Paulo Freire said, "education does not change the world: it changes the people who are going to change the world".
Those responsible for the "Unlearn Education" initiative want to create an international network of young people willing to "rethink" the educational model. As a first step, we are going to prepare a "Manifesto for Educational Change" in which the largest possible number of youth voices is collected globally. We need your collaboration. Can you help us by filling out this questionnaire? Thanks for your time.
