A free global conference brought to you by Fondation Helvetica Educatio, with the generous support of the Gebert Rüf Stiftung, the Jacobs Foundation, the Fondation H. Dudley Wright, the OECD, Swissnex, the Center for Curriculum Redesign and the Foundation of the International School of Geneva.

To: Policymakers, experts, professors and teachers of Mathematics, Science, and Technology & Engineering

What should students be learning for the 21st century? This conference will discuss top-level changes in the Mathematics school curriculum, regarding what branches and topics should be added or emphasized and why, and just as crucially, what should be de-emphasized or removed.

In the 21st century, humanity is facing severe difficulties at the societal (global warming, financial stresses), economic (globalization, innovation) and personal levels (employability, happiness). As the world of the 21st century bears little resemblance to that of the 19th century, education curricula are overdue for a major redesign.
In Science/Technology/Engineering/Math (STEM), demand is outpacing supply worldwide. Math being the foundation of STEM, and in turn innovation, the situation requires urgent attention. Beyond STEM professions, we are seeing very significant innumeracy in a very large segment of the global population, which has severe consequences on the ability to understand the world’s difficulties (e.g. exponentials in global warming, diseases etc.).

Speakers — deep, relevant and exciting topics:
Andreas Schleicher (OECD) and Michele Bruniges (Australia) on PISA Maths 2021
Stanislas Deheane (CNRS) on Mathematics and the brain
Keith Devlin (Stanford University) on Mathematics people really need
John MacCormick (Dickinson College) on Algorithms that change the world
Zbigniew Marciniak (Uniwersytet Warszawski) on Poland’s example
Conrad Wolfram (Mathematica) acclaimed TED talk: Stop Teaching Calculating, Start Teaching Maths
