What is the new paradigm in education?
New Paradigm of Education is the brainchild of the International Movement Youth Time. The goal of the project is to unite young people from different countries and empower them. We believe that they have to play the key role in changing our societies with diverse intercultural education activities and campaigns.
We are convinced that one of the most important requirements to reach better education are active youth participation and embedding youth vision in the sphere of education.This initiative will lead to a better understanding between different societies and inclusion of young people as a full-fledged stakeholder for changing education.
International Youth Forum “New Paradigm of Education: European Dialogue” in Paris 26 – 27 November 2013 aims to build and promote the platform to support youth initiatives in education. The Paris Declaration on Education that will be signed there will expose youth vision on education and will mark the ways to adapt education to the modern world challenges and will ensure high-quality learning experience available for all representatives of the new generation around the globe.
