IdeaLab is a forum for reflecting on current topics of interest to Canadians. Experts from the Canadian Commission for UNESCO’s broad network explore a variety of topics ranging from arts education to 'fake news.' IdeaLab offers new perspectives to encourage intersectoral and cross-disciplinary dialogue.

IdeaLab provides more than a simple overview of topics of current interest. The forum promotes discussion on a variety of topics such as misinformation, arts education, the contribution of Indigenous traditions to education, and radicalization. The perspectives presented encourage readers to approach and think differently about a range of issues and sectors of society. These discussion papers are intended for governments, national and international network partners, and civil society.
