“We have hope. We have enormous potential of what children can achieve together...if we let them.”


– Sugata Mitra, Professor of Educational Technology, Newcastle University


This year presents an opportunity for a


shift in practice, an invitation to show stu- dents the connections between subjects and to ask them to dream of solutions to real problems. Through the 2020 school shut- down and reboot, we were given a view of what we value and what needs to change. Now that school has begun in this new way, it is up to us, as teachers, to look at climate change, inequalities and connection to the land and water in a new way. This isn’t about rote learning; it’s role learning. It’s about embracing responsibilities and empowering change. Though it can be daunting to set out on this path, there is a worldwide network of educators who will support you. Together, as the UN Global Goals motto states, we will “Leave no one behind.” n
