In the era of Artificial Intelligence, what educational orientations for the construction of the Human?

The vision of Man is transformed by the great current upheavals, and confront each other humanist, transhumanist, optimist or alarmist; we heard them dialogue during our two previous meetings and agree on the priority to be given to human dignity in new technologies. We are now approaching the very key to human progress, which is Education "generating hope which gives birth, growth and is situated in the dynamic of the gift of life" (Pope Francis).

MOOC "Linguistic Diversity, What for"

Linguistic and cultural diversity become more and more evident everywhere, but their importance, their scope and their implications are often neglected. For this reason we invite you to join our course, in which we approach linguistic diversity and multilingualism both from a theoretical point of view and from a perspective aimed to help understand and manage various elements that emerge from diversity in different environments of social interaction.

Through this course we intend to broaden horizons about linguistic diversity, multilingualism and revitalization, and to discover and understand their implications in areas ranging from personal introspection to education, politics, social relations, arts and the digital world.

In particular, we hope to create a platform for sharing and discussing, in order to enrich all participants’ knowledge, open their perspectives and encourage them to safeguard and promote linguistic diversity.

75 years of NGO's contribution to the UNESCO missions

The conference is being co-organized by the representatives of CIOFF, Soroptimist and the Rotary Intercountry Committee executive council. UNESCO was created in order to respond to the firm belief of nations, forged by two world wars in less than a generation that political and economic agreements are not enough to build a lasting peace. Peace must be established based on humanity’s moral and intellectual solidarity.

Since its founding, UNESCO has sought to collaborate with NGOs, which are fundamental civil society partners for the implementation of the Organization’s activities and programs. Over the years, UNESCO has built up a valuable network of cooperation with NGOs having an expertise in its fields of competence, i.e. education, science, social and human sciences, culture, communication and information.

Three themes will be highlighted: Culture; Education with a particular focus on girls; and Promoting peace and understanding

By organizing this joint conference which will highlight significant examples of their projects and activities that contribute to UNESCO’s programs and goals, CIOFF, Rotary and Soroptimist wish to demonstrate that by working together, UNESCO and the Civil society area driving force contributing to build a better world.
