Education Now: Innovations in Global Education

Members of the Yidan Prize Foundation's Council of Luminaries discuss the powerful ideas that will shape the world’s education landscape for the next decade and beyond.

Every nation describes education as a top domestic policy priority. But few avenues exist to connect those policy conversations across national boundaries. What should a global conversation about education look like? What are the pressing international challenges that educators and societies face — and where are the opportunities for innovation, collaboration, discovery, and meaningful engagement on real-world problems?

Join us for Innovations in Global Education, where we'll explore the powerful ideas that will shape the world’s education landscape for the next decade and beyond. We’re proud to host members of the Council of Luminaries, an international and cross-disciplinary group of leading thinkers convened by the Yidan Prize Foundation in 2020 to fuel education progress globally.
