The Asia Society convened a working group of leaders from six cities in Asia and in North America that are focused on exploring how education systems – both formal and non-formal – are rethinking what it means to educate the whole child by developing not only the academic knowledge of youth, but also the cognitive and social-emotional competencies required for 21st century success, more broadly referred to as 21st century competencies.  With the support of the Mott Foundation, Asia Society and Policy Studies Associates published a report on how cities in the working group are approaching systems-level support for integrating the 21st century competencies for all youth. The report and related articles can be accessed on Asia Society’s website.

 There will also be a Twitter chat with lead researcher Christina Russell on Thursday, October 6, at 5pm PT/8pm ET (#GlobalEdChat)
