Trends Shaping Education examines major trends affecting the future of education and sets the background on upcoming challenges for policy makers and education providers alike. This work does not give conclusive answers: it is not an analytical report nor is it a statistical compendium, and it is certainly not a statement of OECD policy on these different developments. It is instead a stimulus for thinking about major tendencies that have the potential to influence education, and conversely, the potential of education to influence these trends.
The 2016 examins global trends such as non-traditional families, increasing migration, climate change, national trends on government spending in health and pensions, the key role of cities in our societies as well as technological trends.
