Time Capsule - Education 2040” is a one-year project funded by European Youth Foundation of the Council of Europe. While emphasizing school leadership, democratic advocacy tools, school students involvement, the main aim of this proposal is to create spaces for school students to discuss how education should look like in the future. This is planned to happen through combined approaches of policy, activism and tools. The project’s smart objectives include:

  • Developing a policy paper in a participatory way on “Students demands for Education 2040”.
  • Strengthening the school student movement through capacity building, upskilling and exchange.
  • Stress testing the contents of the policy paper and laying the groundwork for advocacy and dissemination actions based on the policy paper.

The realization of these objectives relies on the distribution of activities such as: Consultations with our Membership to co-create an OBESSU position,a School Student Convention gathering 25 student representatives from different countries of Europe in Summer 2024, an Editorial Meeting and finalizing a Policy Paper on the future of Education. In a world marked by rapid technological advancements and evolving societal needs, the landscape of education is continuously transforming. As we march towards the year 2040, envisioning a future where education is more inclusive, adaptive, and empowering has become inevitable. The Work Plan for Education 2040 emerges as a beacon, outlining a comprehensive roadmap to navigate the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.

Education is a lifelong journey, and the Work Plan emphasizes the importance of fostering a culture of continuous learning while seeking intercultural understanding, and a sense of global citizenship among students, preparing them to navigate diverse perspectives and contribute meaningfully to a globalized society. 

In conclusion, the Work Plan for Education 2040 embodies a bold vision for the future of education, grounded in the principles of innovation, inclusivity and empowerment. Advocating for technology integration serves as a powerful enabler in transforming education. By implementing the outlined activities, objectives and advocacy tools, stakeholders can collectively pave the way towards a more equitable, resilient and prosperous future through education.
