Abstract

This chapter comprises of three parts. The first is focused on the origins and implementation of the UNESCO chair in Life Long Career Counseling of the University of Wroclaw, as well as the main discussions and activities that have taken place since its creation in 2013. The UNESCO Chair has been created in a context where many major crises threaten the future of mankind and the second part describes the key challenges that the UNESCO Chair has integrated as main concerns. Its aim is to contribute to reflection on the ways career counseling and guidance could play a role in handling these crises and build a better future for all people. The third part gives an overview of the contributions in this book that aimed to bring together the output of researchers working in the framework of the UNESCO Chair during these first years of operation (from 2013 to 2017) and offer an overview of a set of conceptual and methodological innovations in the field of Career Counseling in different parts of the world. The purpose of the book is also to provide a large overview of current research in the field of Interventions for Life and Career Design (ILCD) in northern and southern countries, pinpointing the importance of both worldview and local contexts to build accurate ILCD.
