Nobel Week Dialogue 2020

​The Challenge of Learning: The Future of Education
The 2020 Nobel Week Dialogue will be an online event, placing the spotlight on learning, and exploring how education can help create a better future: the future we want.
Among the many disruptions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, our long-established education systems have been turned upside down. As we struggle to make socially-distanced classrooms and online learning work, the challenges of the current situation seem quite enough to deal with. Education, like everything else, will never be quite the same again. But the challenges facing learning in the 21st century are far wider than those posed by the current crisis.
From the role of technology to the question of what we ought to know in order to meet the global challenges ahead, the themes discussed at the dialogue underpin our future. What works, what doesn’t, and what are the benefits and pitfalls of our new, digital world and learning at a distance? With billions lacking the resources or time to access such education, will technology truly deliver equality of opportunity?
The Nobel Week Dialogue will, as always, be a true meeting of science and society, bringing together an intergenerational group of participants from a range of geographies and backgrounds to discuss how best to shape the future of learning.
