At a time of unprecedented multiple crises threatening life on earth, the wholesale transformation of cultures and societies has never been more imperative. This article draws on insights and experiences of a group of women leaders who met in Oxford in October 2013, for five days of intensive thinking and discussion on the emerging future. They concurred that more than any other single factor, transformed educational institutions, curricula and methodologies could help meet the challenges of the 21st century and shape a positive future for the earth. They use the term Whole Mind education for the central feature of transformed educational models and posit three components of it as providing the greatest benefit: integration, creativity and peace. This article draws especially on the research and insights of a subset of the Emerging Future group, who have pioneering experience in innovative education, at all levels, across much of the world.
