Join us in-person or online as we learn about the future of education systems.

On Sept 15, Aga Khan Foundation Canada welcomes you to join a conversation on the future of education systems post COVID-19.

The event will highlight a recent education policy paper developed by Dr. Fernando Reimers and his students from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Education. The paper was published by UNESCO in Advancing a New Social Contract for Education (Ch. 5).
