Meeting Description:

The Worldwide Forum on Education and Culture welcomes presentations in all disciplines and on every level of education and business.

The congress will focus on living and learning in the years ahead. For example, where will we find ourselves in 10 or 20 years? How do we get ready for a world we cannot see or even imagine? How can we work together toward a common purpose and still retain our individuality?

In addition, what are the practical ways we can prepare students and people for tomorrow? What do we teach them today and what will they need to know to face the years ahead? Most of all, Voices of the Future: The Sound of Many Languages and Nations in Partnership can we do collectively to improve the quality of life, living and learning throughout the world?
