What values, knowledge, skills, and attitudes should we teach to prepare students for the world in which we live and for the changes to come? This booklet aims to support ministry of education staff and other stakeholders in identifying key learning content that will help ensure students’ safety, strengthen their resilience, and contribute to the development of a cohesive, stable society. Every country faces particular risks related to safety, disaster risk reduction (DRR) and learning to live together (LTLT). The education system must play its part, alongside other sectors, in addressing these risks and building a better future for all members of society. It is imperative that it takes on this role, not least because of its potential influence on younger people and its ability to reach across borders to build a better world.
