Foreword
This publication presents the initial ndings from a joint project between SSAT and NESTAin which groups of students identify some of the key challenges facing education in the 21
st
 century, particularly in the context of a globalised economy, and how they think educationshould best respond to these.Issues such as an ageing population, environmental sustainability and globalisation willpresent today’s young people with problems to contend with as well as opportunities tograsp. To succeed in the future, young people will need to have the condence, skills andunderstanding not only to respond to change but also to become the instigator of changethemselves.In all the debates about the future of education, it is surprising how often the voice andengagement of students is overlooked. This project demonstrates that young people cancontribute new thinking, ideas and insights on education and how it should be delivered.It also shows that, with the right support and encouragement, they have a key role to playin helping transform learning so that it is t for the future and gives them the skills andknowledge they will need.
