Abstract: The present work explores the concept of education and engages at the same time with the re-conceptualization of it. The main purpose is to navigate in the different shifts of how education is conceptualized, understood and applied at different levels. The concepts around education and the way is perceived may have changed but there is the need of doing a deeper analysis around the role and the structures, to sightsee the possibility of greater change in pro of education and an open education dialogue.
