For The RAND Study On 21st Century Skills
Asia Society seeks funding for a report summarizing "what works" in promoting development of higher order thinking skills for students. The report, to be produced by RAND Corporation, will support discussions and collaborative work toward understanding common problems in education, designing flexible solutions, and catalyzing change in policy and practice. Asia Society is launching the Global Cities Education Network - a group of five urban school districts in North America and an equal number of urban education systems in high-performing Asian countries - to engage in the project. The Network will focus on issues pertaining to a) teaching for innovation: how school systems can produce students who have the knowledge and thinking skills to succeed in a global economic and civic environment; and b) policies for equity: how school systems can be designed to ensure all students have access to the highest quality education.

Grants to this Grantee
for dialogues exploring accelerated climate action in China
This grant supports Asia Society’s work on dialogues to explore accelerating climate action in China. The project aims to surface notable, promising, and test-worthy new insights, ideas, and strategies that can be applied to compel greater climate action from China in the coming decade. The ideas generated and shared from this project can be applied by a group of stakeholders both inside and outside China. If fully utilized, the implementation of innovative and practical ideas in this project can result in additional climate actions from China relative to its 14th Five Year Plan’s stated emissions reduction goals, while shaping the future of China’s economy from 2025 onward.
