The purpose of the article is to understand UNESCO's educational concept. It is established that education is a combination of worldview and innovative technologies. Education is about interdisciplinary synthesis. Education should bring results, benefits, a "common good" (bonum commune). The focus is on the concept of "lifelong learning". It is substantiated that education is a consequence of effective state policy and a component of the humanitarian security of the state. The concept of education, according to UNESCO declarations and reports, is, after all, a complex view of education as a tool for changing the world. Education is a "humane" weapon in ensuring quality transformations in the world. The function of the new model of education is to educate a humane person who is responsible for himself and the environment, a person who is socially responsible and a person who knows not only his rights but also his responsibilities. In this publication, we substantiate the position that the humanities cycle provides a culture of thinking in general, accompanied by the acquisition of critical and analytical thinking, the education of aesthetic taste, which is important for the formation of a harmonious personality. The modern concept of education tries to reconcile and combine a triad of such concepts as: "society-state-market". The criterion of knowledge is not the truth, but the benefit they bring. Theory should teach and open new opportunities for us. Today, education is a strategic priority for development and is seen as one of the key aspects of human progress, along with the social and economic aspects of such development. Knowledge has an expiration date. In order to be competitive, you need to learn throughout your life. Education is a common good (bonum commune) on the scale of social significance. Thus, education is not only a component of effective public policy, but also the foundation and guarantee of sound humanitarian security. The teacher is endowed with the greatest social responsibility, because it is on him that the progress of mankind depends. A teacher, a thinker, a researcher who is aware of his responsibility for the progress of civilization in the face of each student. It is established that an indicator of effective learning is the development of emotional intelligence. Interdisciplinary synthesis should determine the education of today. Education is and should be part of the futurological screenplay of human development. Our future is promising, full of accelerated development of new technologies, but at the same time, unpredictable. The reason for this unpredictability lies in the growing gap between the most developed countries and developing countries. Inequality in access to quality education is growing. Education is a public good, a necessary element of a harmonious human life, but at the same time it is not available to everyone. Accordingly, the goal of the entire intellectual world community should be the dissemination of knowledge and equal access to it. Knowledge without borders is the goal of the whole united world community. The most effective "agent" of the future is the field of education, education "works" for the future, determining the personal qualities of each person, his knowledge, skills, worldview and priorities of behavior, and accordingly – the economic and spiritual potential of civilization as a whole. Education is about the future and the present. About a person with knowledge, values, flexible skills, critical thinking that makes this world a better place.
