BOCA RATON, Fla. and PARIS, March 28, 2022— Anthology, a leading provider of education solutions that support the entire learner lifecycle, and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) have announced Anthology’s sponsorship for the World Higher Education Conference (WHEC2022). The conference takes place in Barcelona, Spain, from March 18, 2022, to March 20, 2022.

UNESCO and Blackboard, now part of Anthology, initially formed a partnership to support global digital learning initiatives in 2020. This flagship higher education event, held only once each decade, marks the organizations’ continued collaboration to help define the future of higher education.

The UNESCO World Higher Education Conference aims to break away from traditional models of higher education and open doors to new, innovative, creative, and visionary conceptions that serve current agendas for sustainable development and pave the way for future learning communities. The WHEC2022 will gather representatives from the worldwide higher education ecosystem, from academics to political leaders and youth, to reshape the ideas and practices in higher education for a more sustainable future. More than 2,000 in-person attendees and 10,000 virtual attendees would convene for this year’s event.

“We are honored to participate in such a momentous event and have a voice in the global conversation about the future of higher education,” said Jim Milton, Anthology Chairman and CEO. “There is an incredible synergy between the work UNESCO is leading and our vision of creating an inspiring and infinite world of learning without boundaries. We look forward to our continued partnership as we seek the best outcomes for learners and leaders across the education community.”

“The third World Higher Education Conference will concentrate on higher education as an agent of social change to contribute to leaving no one behind in higher ed,” said Mr. Peter Wells, UNESCO Chief of Higher Education. “Anthology’s dedication to supporting the entire learning lifecycle for students of all backgrounds makes them an excellent partner for UNESCO, both for this event and future.”

“Anthology” offers the largest EdTech ecosystem globally for education, recently combining with Blackboard to support more than 150 million users in 80 countries. With a mission to provide dynamic, data-informed experiences to the global education community, Anthology helps learners, leaders, and educators achieve their goals through over 60 SaaS products and services designed to advance learning.

UNESCO is the only United Nations agency with a mandate to cover all aspects of education. The organization believes that education is a human right and that access must match quality. Its work encompasses educational development from pre-school to higher education and beyond.
