Unleash the Talent: Reimaging higher education for a new generation of learning

Peter J. Wells, Chief, Higher Education, UNESCO, France

Building on the outcomes of the 3rd UNESCO World Conference on Higher Education (WHEC2022), what are the expectations now for reinventing the university? How will these visions be turned into actions that support the 2030 Agenda and beyond? Who will make this happen? Unpicking the WHEC2022 Roadmap as a living and organic set of directions at a pivotal moment in higher learning, is a collaborative and interactive process to ensure a sustainable and inclusive journey for all stakeholders of higher education - students, teachers, researchers, institutional leaders, policy makers and wider communities.
