As the global community continues to grapple with the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Atlantic Council is open for business. Our business, meetings, and events, however, are occurring virtually. For more information, please read an update from our President and CEO.
Education is essential for ensuring individuals are prepared for both the jobs of today as well as the ones that will be created for tomorrow. As we enter the “GeoTech Decade” where data and tech will have significant impacts on global geopolitics, competition, and collaborations – education becomes even more essential given the exponential changes happening with regards to digital systems, physical supply chains, health technologies, and commercial space solutions. It is essential not to become so caught-up in new technologies or risk losing focus on how different people learn best.
Please join us on Wednesday, 16 June from 12:00pm-1:00pm Eastern as part of the weekly GeoTech Hour for an important discussion regarding teaching tech, data, and engineering in our exponential era ahead. We will also discuss how to link education to the jobs of today and tomorrow, to ensure what people learning gives them the necessary skills, abilities, and knowledge to succeed amid global change.

We all can lead. Positive “change agents” — individuals willing to work across sectors and nations to help illuminate better ways through the shared turbulence we are experiencing — are needed now more than ever.
