Abstract [en]

Life today is global on many levels and the 21st century will be earmarked as the first age of global living for the masses. Educators need a new mindset to lead them to a new paradigm of schooling, with a new curriculum called life. as in the first edition of this book, the authors argue that schools can adapt better to emergin global working and living conditions when they are set free of bureaucratic thinking and instead hold systemic thinking as a mindset. In this second edition, the authors have now added how a much sharper focus is needed: developing schools as global learning centers that prepare students now to be competent and caring global citizens.It is within the global context of living that the mission of schools needs to change course so that students, at every age, can become citizens who are both knowledgeable and skillful and who care about the human community and its sustainability.
