Towards Knowledge Societies UNESCO World Report 1

‘Towards Knowledge Societies is one of those rare organizational publications that engage the reader immediately. The authors do this with a direct and extremely pertinent question: ‘Does the aim of building knowledge societies make any sense when history and anthropology teach us that since ancient times, all societies have probably been, each in its own way, knowledge societies.’ The question is answered at once by a series of defining statements. For example: A knowledge society is a society that is nurtured by its diversity and its capacities; a knowledge society must foster knowledge sharing; knowledge societies are not limited to the information society. (…) The conclusion of this UNESCO World Report contains 10 recommendations that form a strategy for promoting knowledge societites globally, but also begins with an attactive question: ‘What if 21st century societies, deeply transformed by the growth of information and communication technologies, were bound to become knowledge societies because they will be knowledge-sharing societies?’
For me, that question encapsultates the vigour and excitement of the proposals as a whole. I have rarely wanted so strongly to urge readers to obtain, read and consider a book as much as I did after reading this one.’

Roger Cowell, Practice Development in Health Care
