Changing the world through education
Education broadens our minds, enhancing our ability to hold different perspectives, which will shape our decisions and our actions when we go out into the world. Education increases innovation and productivity, it fosters positive social change, encouraging political participation, social equality or environmental sustainability – not only individually, but in a broad spectrum of our shared society. As Nelson Mandela said, “education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”. How can education change the world?
