An overview of how individuals and leaders in schools can co-create learning experiences for students that center on community action

This workshop will provide an overview of how individuals and leaders in schools can co-create learning experiences for students that center on community action for harmony with nature, social cohesion, well-being, and sustainable development.

21st Century Schools recognize that they are inextricably and powerfully connected to a global community and that they need to find ways to bring the world into their schools to deepen the meaning and purpose of the learning in schools but ultimately to build a brighter future.

Inspire Citizens are on the forefront of transforming learning through their Empathy to Impact co-design system and framework. Their mission is to enable educators and learners to work together to shape a more equitable, joyful, and sustainable future

This workshop is a must for anyone that is

A classroom educator that seeks ways to bring greater compassion, ecological thinking, civic literacy, and sustainability into the classroom, while connecting learning outcomes to inner-development, real world challenges, and purposeful action.

A curriculum, sustainability, or service learning coordinator that is trying to help their school’s vision and mission for student agency and global citizenship come to life through highly engaging, student-centered learning experiences.

A technology & innovation coach or librarian who leads or collaborates on projects with teachers that enhance literacies such as data, transmedia, information, futures thinking, and generative listening.

A school counselor who is working to spark mentoring experiences that center on empathy, civil discourse, student leadership, co-creation, and relevance in a complex world.

A future-focused administrator who is exploring proof-of-concept in building a culture of engaged global citizenship as a through-line for any and all school-wide, evolving learning communities.
