At CIES Stanford, delegates stretched beyond “good versus
evil” “you’re “either with us or against us” dichotomies.
Voices were raised, Powerpoints hummed and nasty dichotomies
went over the fence. But, at the beginning, middle and
end of the day, it all boiled down to “learning to live
together.” Vancouver is one of the most diverse,
multicultural and vibrant cities on earth. If you haven’t
been there lately your life is not complete. People
there knows heaps about “living together” and, fortunately,
UNESCO also realizes the importance of the task. In
its 1996 Report (Learning: The Treasure Within),
UNESCO identified Learning to Live Together as
one of four pillars of life. Throughout the last decade
much educational discourse has been captured by (sometimes
dodgy) claims about globalization, knowledge-based economies,
human capital formation, benchmarking and best practices.
There has been little debate concerning UNESCO’s fourth
pillar - Learning to Live Together. Join us at
the flower-besotted drop-dead gorgeous University of
British Columbia, September 30th to October
1st, 2005. As usual with CIES, there will
be individual-paper and panel-presentations. We’ll accept
e-mail submissions. Hence:
Your name, your email address, the paper title and an
abstract not to exceed 200 words
name and email address of the organizer, the panel title,
a 200 word overview of the panel, authors names and
paper titles for individual panelists.
