The meet will be initiated by His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and hosted by The Art of Living. The goal of the confernce is to address the new roles of education and the new demands made on education systems in a world of accelerating economic, environmental and social change. Explore the successful existing methods and models that derive the inspiration from values and principles from traditional sources of learning and how these examples can be implemented effectively in mainstream education in dealing with modern life problems and challenges. Experts are of the opinion that education should be holistic; learning should be joyful, stress free and experiential. Each stakeholder should take responsibility to transform within and work towards bringing an impact without waiting for the systems to change. Now the challenge in front of us is to address how this can be implemented in mainstream education.
