Innovative 21st century education models

Partner Y Generation Education Partner The DO School

Workshop Description

In this workshop, participants will dive into a discussion and a brainstorming around the skills and mindsets needed in 21st century life and work environment. We will take a global look into the needs of education and highlight different sectors.

Together, the participants will then develop innovative ideas around building new educational models to offer the skills needed for the right target group, especially the less privileged. One important aspect within the discussion will be the role of social businesses as well as opportunities for companies to take on new and leading roles in finding global solutions for the education of the next generation. The workshop will be complemented by insights into the business models of Y Generation Education and The DO School as case studies for innovative educational social business models.

The outcome of this workshop will be an overview of concrete ideas and models introducing new ways to provide relevant skills to different target groups around the world.
