Upcoming Program

Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) has many benefits – from helping young people build the skills to thrive in the fourth industrial revolution to supporting whole communities as they grapple with complex change and upheaval. However, for a variety of reasons there has yet to be widescale adoption of SEL-oriented education system reform.

The fourth virtual meeting of the Education Policymakers Network will focus on SEL evidence and policy implications from the OECD’s Study on Social and Emotional Skills. 

The Education Policymakers Network will connect policymakers from different countries to work, learn and innovate together. Launching in 2021, the network will help support and sustain education reform around the need to develop a breadth of skills – cognitive, creative, physical, social and emotional – in young learners.

Each of the virtual network meetings will hear from a guest speaker on a specific topic and will then look at the evidence of impact and existing policies around a specific reform idea.

An insights report will be generated from each meeting that can be shared across the network. The meetings will also be recorded so that they can act as a resource for the members after they took place. 

This virtual network meeting is only open to participants in the Education Policymakers Network.
