Abstract

In an era characterised by rapid changes in technology, significant effects from climate change, dramatic changes in the world economy, the interconnectedness of small and developing countries with large developed states, countries and economic blocs, a critical human requirement for survival is the nurturing and sustaining learning societies.//While one accepts the validity of an information society and a knowledge society, my choice of the designation learning society recognizes the importance of process, the need for lifelong learning, flexibility of thought and decision making, litheness and the ability to respond to change or to initiate change.//The education systems, objectives and processes themselves, therefore, have to be appropriate for the times in which we live and for the future we contemplate – as individual nations, as members of the CW, and as shapers of a world view, contributors to international peace, good order and prosperity.
