What kind of education will enable young people to flourish in the 21st century?
The International Baccalaureate was created 50 years ago in 1968 to offer an education with a specific mission: “to develop young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect”.
The International Baccalaureate is today offered by 4,871 schools across the world, to nearly 160,000 students each year through four different programmes. In the UK it is offered by 140 schools, independent, state and international. IB’s courses encourage students to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
To celebrate the IB’s 50th birthday, the RSA joins with the International Baccalaureate Schools & Colleges Association to gather an expert panel of educators, policymakers and industry leaders to ask: what steps do we need to take across our school system to ensure that all our young people receive the kind of broad, balanced and rich education that will prepare them to navigate a rapidly changing socio-economic landscape; to flourish as individuals; and to work with others to create a better future for all?
