What if we reorganized school around solving (not just learning about) the biggest world challenges of our time--these huge, transdisciplinary problems that, if left unsolved, will precipitate a rapid decline in quality of life around the world? For example...

  • Climate change
  • Human displacement (refugees)
  • Poverty
  • Political instability / global leadership
  • Food scarcity

(this list comes from TED Radio Hour, "The Big Five")

--Carla Silver, Executive Director, Leadership + Design


Normally we share a "what if" scenario for our Wednesday post. These are not suggestions as much as provocations.

We're sitting on several great what if's, so this week we're running three in a row.

If you have a "what if" scenario you would like to share, just send an email (and indicate whether you would like it attributed it to you).
