Abstract

Of the four pillars of education, identified by International Commission on Education for the Twenty-first Century, 'learning to live together' is an integral part of building knowledge societies. The other three pillars - 'learning to know,' 'learning to do,' and 'learning to be' - are necessary for 'learning to live together,' which is a dynamic, holistic and lifelong process. This could be seen as a characteristic of a knowledge society, where knowledge is seen as a public common good for life and well being of all.  Individuals are nurtured and educated to move from an ego centric life vision to a community oriented world vision. Each individual is trained and supported to make use of the learning opportunities critically and creatively throughout life both to enhance one's knowledge, talents, skills, competence, etc. to live together in peace and harmony.
