Not just any place, but the most important and necessary one for human progress. Education is the answer to interconnecting the world, the weapon to fight inequality, to help to improve our status, the tool to improve the efficiency of corporates, and more. Education has been and will always be the most honest way to build a better society.
Why invest in this trend?
The middle class of emerging countries is growing.And with it grows the desire to offer their children a better education than the one they received. A natural desire that will translate into increased spending on education by the families that make up this new middle class. A trend that is already being experienced in China and is expected to continue in countries like India.
The work environment is increasingly competitive.It is in this environment that education plays a key role. The changes that have taken place in society and, above all, those still to come, require continuous training for the acquisition of new skills needed to adapt to the new roles that society requires.
A new scenario for which the different governments will, like it or not, need the collaboration of the private sector.
The necessary support to increase investment in education, because, if not, many states will not be able to meet the growing demands of their population, especially in an economic situation like the current one.
A piece of data: an estimated loss of more than 1.5 billion jobs.The ecological transition and the digitalisation or automation of processes require a transformation and training to allow the working population to continue in the jobs market.
And another piece of data, which demonstrates the opportunity to invest.Today, the education sector has only a minimal presence in the equity market, of just 5%.
A sector that awaits an increase in public investment to offset the deficit caused by the pre-pandemic crisis.
A transformation in which new technologies play a critical role
