Why Trendreport Education?

Education is changing all over the world. We collect exciting educational approaches for the Trend Report from around the world in fields ranging from nursery education to academies for senior citizens. We then analyse the strategies applied in these fields to see whether they have similarities. You can find the results under TRENDS, and learn more about the individual projects under CASES.

This is only the beginning. The Trend Report Education is continuously evolving as new projects lead to the emergence of new trends. If you have heard about any other exciting educational projects, we would be very happy to hear about them.

Trend Report Education is a project run by the Initiative Schule im Aufbruch

Education benefits from an exchange between people, between institutions, between (learning) cultures, and between the various ways in which education can be experienced. This is why Schule im Aufbruch reports about exceptional educational projects. These projects are unique and extraordinary compared to their immediate environments. But they are also exemplary of worldwide trends. Moreover, they implement UNESCO’s four pillars of learning: learning to know, learning to do, learning to be and learning to live together. This is what we mean by Schule im Aufbruch.
