Prof. Dr. mult. Wassilios E. Fthenakis | FOREWORDS 9 D uring the last few years, a change has been taking place within international education systems. While the education systems of the 20th century simply authorised the transfer of knowledge from one generation to the next, today they must also focus from the start on supporting childhood development and skills. Only in this way we can prepare our children for the modern world and guide them so that they are commensurate to the challenges of a globalised 21st century. This development is relevant in almost every part of the world, especially where many countries are incorporating changes to the social landscape. The German education sector, under the umbrella of the Didacta Associa- tion, would like to extend its knowledge and experience to successfully help facilitate changes within this transition period. We are aware of our great responsibility, as it is the quality of education which ensures the lasting implementation of new educational concepts. Together with its partners, the Didacta Association will do everything it can to ensure that from the beginning, education at all stages of a child’s devel- opment can be successful. We place great importance on our partnerships with other organisations such as the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (BIBB). We are delighted to be working side by side with such capable partners, and I am convinced that we will learn much from each other as we work toward our common goal of offering the best educational chances possible to every child and adult.
