Since the 19th century, education has been a continuing driving force for social progress. However, amidst the broader trends of globalization, technological advances, declining birth rate, aging population and talent mobility, the society has been significantly disconnected from the past one. By extension, we can reasonably anticipate the future that is even more disconnected from the present. Education must, therefore, change in its content and methodology in order to adapt to the approaching future society and the requirements it will present. Globalization and technological shifts, on the other hand, have served as forces that bring about these changes. This session will aim to forecast the mega trends in education and to propose how education should adapt as we transition into a different world of the future. There will also be discussions on effective and diverse ways of global collaboration among institutions of formal and informal education to train the next generation leaders of the global economy post-crisis.
