WLS 2022 THEME

A key insight from 2021: The Corona pandemic is here to stay for a long time, affecting people around the world in different degrees and manners. Research during 2021 documents the centrality of keeping students well-being at the heart of our concerns in higher education. It will also be a guiding concern in 2022, while institutions of higher education also seek ro return to a “normal”.

The near future is in other words rather uncertain, as far as higher education in 2022 is concerned. The future beyond 2022 is a future contextualized in climate crisis, mobility crises, extremism and the not so evident future of democracy.

We invite you to join World Learning Summit 2022 to explore the future of education and the future in education with us.
