Abstract: This chapter begins by examining briefly several aspects of the nexus between globalisation and social change, particularly, the formal drive towards globalisation and the monitoring in the future of the changes in human development and in the initial learning of the skills of literacy and numeracy by people across the whole world. This chapter argues that only through educating to a higher level all the people who occupy planet Earth can the challenge for sustainable development be met. It is necessary for the‘globalisation movement‘ that was initiated by the United Nations Organization and its agencies, particularly UNESCO, with an emphasis on education, science and culture, to continue to direct activities towards the sustainable development of the human race on planet Earth through the provision of educational services. It is only through the globalisation of education that the many challenges to the human race on planet Earth can be met.
