The World Bank has launched a new, thought-provoking seminar series. Radical and innovative thinkers and education leaders will be invited to come to the World Bank and share their wisdom and experience. These events will provide Bank staff and other guests with insights about education issues. At a time when there is increased interest in education worldwide, unprecedented lending by the World Bank, and a new Education Strategy is being produced, this series is designed to stimulate new thinking on education from diverse perspectives. Many of the ideas that will come out of the seminar series may be radical, but this new thinking will reinvigorate staff and lead to new and innovative ideas to guide our strategy going forward.
