What can the G20 do to shape a coherent, inclusive and forward-looking educational system? 

The global economy is being transformed by technological advances such as artificial intelligence, advanced manufacturing techniques and technology-enabled platforms, inducing structural shifts in our labour markets. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic will lead to further structural transformations. The education system plays a key role during this transformation. It will support the transition best if the curriculum is coherent across levels and countries, if it forward-looking by conveying required competencies such as creativity and emotional intelligence, and if it is inclusive to all citizens to improve social cohesion. This Global Table will discuss how these goals can be achieved. It will also discuss how global policy responses to the the COVID-19 pandemic threaten the educational system and the effective delivery of education, and what can be done to prepare for the post-crisis period.

Listening to Mr Andreas, I started to visualize the future of education. And here I want to ask the question: how do you imagine establishment and creation of the same curriculum around G20 countries? Can national identity deter this process at some point? Or what is going to be the language of such platform?
