Education plays a very important part in shaping the society and in particular the economy.
Here is a great video by McKinsey and Partners that makes the claim we need to look at education as part of a system. Education and training need to be relevant, theory needs to be better matched with practice. It advocates for more active practice-based learning and collaboration between different societal actors, industry and education. However, we must not forget that only responding to the industry is not the solution – education has a moral responsibility to question and innovate, to solve the great challenges of our century, advocate for sustainable responsible development.
