This is a bonus poster, designed by Linda J. de Wit who was the CID intern in 2017, and who has now returned as an occasional graphic design consultant.
This poster illustrates the recommendations of the CID Focus Groups Report for UNESCO’s Futures of Education Initiative to add a 10th idea to their list of 9 ideas, as described in their report, Education in a post-COVID world: Nine ideas for public action.
In the report, we ask that they consider intercultural dialogue as essential to learning to live together.
Intercultural dialogue permits not merely living together with a wide range of other people but living together with (and despite) our differences, taking empathy, compassion, and respect for all as a given.
