Emergence x YSI | Partnership for the goals
We know that the Future of Education doesn’t take into account borders, traditional institutions, time or place. And education as a whole, through increased access to the internet will become more and more accessible for more and more people around the world.
We think that skills like the ability to create human centred concepts, the ability to collaborate, the ability to take leadership, work on creative problemsolving, the ability to make sense and relevance along with the skills needed for leading these processes, are all skills needed in the future. These are all skills we’ve built the Emergence methodology on, and that we think will become more and more relevant.
For us as a school, one of the main questions we’ve asked ourselves is; how might we make our knowledge and education more accessible for more people, in new ways, through new channels. This is what we’re working on through our Emergence Digital | Future of Education project.
In this work, we’re very happy to announce that we’ve now teamed up with Young Sustainable Impact to understand and learn more about digital innovation, learning and problem solving. The vision is to create a platform where Impactmakers are empowered solve the projects they are passionate about.
By teaming up with YSI, we’ll be able to reach a bigger global audience through all their members, and together figure out the best approach for digital education and collaboration. We are very excited!
