Global Business Coalition for Education
I advise the Global Business Coalition for Education, which aims to harness the private sector in the effort to get every child into school. You can find out more about the aims here. The effort is not just about fundraising, but bringing the creativity, ideas and problem solving ability of business to this most pressing global challenge. For me, this is also unfinished business. As part of the effort, we have launched the REACT (Rapid Education Action) initiative.
Towards Global Learning Goals
In September 2017, I launched a new two year project, Towards Global Learning Goals. This aims to tackle the obstacles to helping the next generation learn the right things, in the right way. If we are to thrive in the 21st century, why, how and what do we all need to learn? We're finding out the answers from the world's great thinkers, and then building a new coalition behind a more coherent and versatile global education.
New York University, Abu Dhabi
I'm a Visiting Professor at New York University Abu Dhabi, where I teach a course on Thriving in the 21st Century, and am supporting the effort to expand peace and global citizenship studies. NYUAD is an extraordinary place, creating the global citizens we are going to need in the future.
