The ongoing global pandemic and the issues it has spawned, requires a recentering of social movements. From inside the global lockdown, there seems to be some consensus about not returning to the ‘old normal’ that never was. But there is little consensus over what the new world should like and how to achieve it. More importantly for those of us in education, the timing seems to be right for rethinking what education after the pandemic should look like. This webinar explores the role of social movements in rethinking education during the pandemic in order to rebuild the world after it.
