Carl Teichrib: November 11, 2013

Consider these two quotes, "Education is the 'force for the future' because it is one of the most powerful instruments of change." - Federico Mayor, UNESCO. "...we can glimpse the potential of a new creation - earth citizenship - in the third millennium, born of seeds and embryos contributed by the 20th century. And education, which both transmits the old and opens the mind to the new, is at the heart of this new mission." - Edgar Morin, Seven Complex Lessons in Education for the Future. Education for world unification: "an organized planetary community." This is the result of "seven complex lessons" utilized by UNESCO in shaping "education for the future." In broadcast 18 of Forcing Change Radio we explore the goal of global citizenship education; the creation of a world society, through the recommendations and requirements of French sociologist Edgar Morin, who, in 1999, assisted UNESCO in shaping fundamental directions in global education priorities. And this work of Morin via UNESCO is a natural extension of what Julian Huxley envisioned. Huxley, the first head of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, wrote the following in regards to UNESCO's educational goals; "...in its educational programme it can stress the ultimate need for world political unity and familiarise all peoples with the implications of the transfer of full sovereignty from separate nations to a world organization."
