“Millions of littele knowledge sources” Transforming education and transition to a sustainable world

In the shadow of the fast coming global environmental and social crisis we have to fundamentally reorganise our social communication and control processes and we need social innovation. We have to create such education to involve future generations – by using sense, emotion and will – in acquiring knowledge about the increasing ecological and social threats and also about the answers to them. This goal can only be reached if structures of public education and science, developed and successful in the industrial age, will be transformed to meet the challenges of information society – with autonomy, social involvement and co-operation.
