23.08.2021 - 27.08.2021


 „Education and Citizenship: Learning and Instruction and the Shaping of Futures" 

Democratic societies build on ideas of active citizens who participate in and contribute to social, cultural and economic development. The UN Agenda 2030 specifies the goals involved in building sustainable and just societies able to successfully address the challenges we face in Anthropocene. Learning and instruction in its various settings play an increasingly important role in promoting the values, skills and knowledge that will allow us to foster active citizens who are able to contribute to sustainable and peaceful co-existence. EARLI can help to advance our understanding of the role and impact of education by addressing the processes and outcomes of learning in broad and innovative ways. This includes attending to features such as the role of learning and instruction for the promotion of agency, the development of collaborative skills, the deepening of a sense of belonging in society and, not least, for the commitment to future learning among all citizens.

The joy and excitement of learning and of knowledge sharing and creation, represent significant components of learning, and they should be considered as important outcomes of learning along with our traditional competence measures. In this respect, they need far more attention from researchers. The pandemic spreading during 2020 reminded us of the fact that the future is increasingly difficult to predict but it seems safe to say that learning and re-learning will continue a top prioirity regardless of the future. The EARLI community accepts the responsibility to show how learning and instruction are consequential for the intellectual, social and cultural fabric of societies striving to shape their future on the road to sustainability.
