XVII World Congress of Comparative Education Societies to be held in Cancun, Mexico in 2019
This century started with renewed goals for the millennium and statements about global citizenship and sustainability; but there are also new issues like migration, terrorism, wars, fuel crisis, among others, that impinge upon the present but will have strong effects upon the future and deserve special thinking and action for educators. That is why we invite comparative education societies to work upon the far and the near future of education, either with a global or a local perspective. To re-think about the ends of education, to make reflections about pedagogies, about the curriculum of the future, the future profile of families and learners, or their new educational settings, or about the fate of teacher training, future scenarios portray so many topics for comparative education.
Cancun is a well known cosmopolitan place with an average of 180 conferences per year and flights to the main cities of the world. The accommodation capacity and restaurants, together with the turquoise color of the seas and the white of the sands, make a great venue for our world conference. The government of the state of Quintana Roo, as well as a number of universities, together with the Sociedad Mexicana de Educación Comparada, are working towards providing with the nicest facilities to ease our academic work.
The XVII World Congress of Comparative Education Societies in Cancun, Mexico will give you a unique opportunity to visit fantastic nearby sites, such as Chichén Itzá, recently named one of the new Seven Wonders of the World and cultural heritage of humanity by UNESCO.
