How to make transformative education sexy – A co-creative process around global comptences in a VUCA world

An increasing number of initiatives across Europe and worldwide develop and deliver transformative adult and higher education which is inspired by integral, holistic and sustainability frameworks. Many of these initiatives, however, struggle with visibility, viability and recognition.In conversations among several initiatives and networks the idea emerged to co-create a European portal for transformative education to promote and strengthen this emerging field. The workshop proposes to explore the following questions through a number of co-creative methods:
What are the competences, dispositions, attitudes a complex and multicultural world needs in order to address properly the global challenges?
Which global culture is required to foster the development of global competences?
Which contents and structures in the educational field do we need in a VUCA World?
What is needed to increase the visibility of transformative education?
