UNESCO's Task Force on Education for the Twenty-first Century published it report, titled Learning: the Treasure Within
in 1996. Later it developed this website is to further debate and reflection on the ideas expressed in that report.
Simply speaking, the Commission felt that education throughout life is based upon four pillars: learning to know, learning to do, learning to live together and learning to be.
Education takes place throughout life in many forms, none of which ought to be exclusive. We must start to think about education in a more all-encompassing fashion. Likewise the four pillars cannot stand alone. Without all the four pillars education would not be the same.
