"Education is the force for the future because it is one of the most powerful instruments of change. One of the greatest problems we face is how to adjust our way of thinking to meet the challenge of an increasingly complex world. We must rethink our way of organizing knowledge. This means breaking down the traditional barriers between disciplines. We have to redesign our educational policies and programs. And as we put these reforms into effect we have to keep our sights on the long term and honor our tremendous responsibility for future generations. From: Seven complex lessons in education for the future - Edgar Morin - UNESCO.
