Education is, after all, a total experience.
The Four Pillars of Education form the basis for the UNESCO-report Learning: The Treasure Within. They cannot be defined separately; they form an integrated whole, complementing and strengthening each other.
The Four Pillars of Education were produced in the report for UNESCO in 1996 by the Commission on Education presided by Jaques Delors.

Lays the foundations of learning throughout life.
This pillar refers to the basic knowledge that we need to be able to understand our environment and to live in dignity.
It is also about arousing curiosity, allowing us to experience the pleasures of research and discovery.
Naturally, learning to know presupposes that we develop the powers of concentration, memory, and thought. In short, that we learn to learn.
Learning to know implies learning how to learn
by developing one's concentration,
memory skills and ability to think.

Every individual has hidden talents such as
1. Memory
2. Reasoning
3. Imagination
4. Physical ability
5. Aesthetic sense
6. Aptitude to communicate
Learning to do refers to the acquisition of practical skills, but also to an aptitude for teamwork and initiative, and a readiness to take risks.
Learning must transform certified skills into personal competence.
It is assessed by looking at a mix of skills and talents, social behaviour, personal initiative and a willingness to work.
Personal Competence includes life skills like :

1. Social behavior
2. Personal initiatives
3. Willingness to take risk
4. Communication skills
5. Problem solving skills
5. Adaptability
6. Social responsibility
7. Leadership skills
Learning to live together is the pillar UNESCO emphasizes more than any other.
It refers first of all to developing an understanding of others through dialogue—leading to empathy, respect, and appreciation.
Education should help in inculcating a spirit of empathy in students so that it can have a positive effect on their social behaviour throughout their lives.
Values to be developed amongst students

Non Violence
Selfless attitude
Developing values
Accepting human diversity
Instill an awareness of the similarities and interdependence of all people
Founded on the fundamental principle that education needs to contribute to the all-round development of each individual.
This pillar deals with the broadening of care for each aspect of the personality.
It deals with giving us the freedom of thought, feeling, and imagination that we need to act more independently, with more insight,more critically, and more responsibly.

The end of education is to discover and open the talents hidden like a treasure within every person.
