Opening schools: Embracing learner’s and society’s mutual imprint

In a fast-changing society, learners need more than knowledge to fulfil their potential and concretely engage in shaping better futures. However, while students seem to have gained a strong awareness of global issues, they remain reluctant to take action or perceive themselves as responsible actors in finding sustainable solutions. The 2018 PISA survey, for instance, outlined that only about 58% of interviewed students strongly agreed with the idea that they could do something about world issues. Generally, schools are not yet suited to accompany students in being satisfied about their life or later in their jobs , even more so when taking into account gender and broader socio-economic disparities.
