Dialogue for the Future is an initiative of the Government of Spain, the European Commission, the European Parliament and 72 other public institutions designed for contributing in a forward-looking way to drive plural and informed conversations about the opportunities and challenges that Spain and the EU will face in the post-Covid world.
The Dialogue has been held in 17 cities of the 17 autonomous communities and consisted of 100 round tables, 37 citizen workshops, and a multitude of meetings and cultural activities that have followed more than 25,000 people face-to-face or remotely. The ideas expressed by speakers and citizens will be used to guide the European policies of the next years and to design the National Long-term Strategy that prepares the National Office of Foresight and Strategy.
In respect of education, the adaptation of the learning and teaching methods to the reality of 21st century, the reduction of early school failure, and the parallel progress in equal opportunities and excellence have constituted the essence of this Dialogue. In addition, the question of whether Spain can achieve the educational vanguard before 2050 has been answered and the possibility of reaching a state pact for long-term education has been considered.
