Today we had a fantastic transnational meeting for the project DESIRE: sharing the experience from piloting our social entrepreneurship curriculum targeting young students and future change makers! The Feedback so far? The whole experience has been regarded as highly relevant, if not "transformative" 🙂For more info on Social Entrepreneurship education, please check us at desireproject.eu/Today we had a fantastic transnational meeting for the project DESIRE: sharing the experience from piloting our social entrepreneurship curriculum targeting young students and future change makers!

Humankind is facing unprecedented revolutions: having seen more social and technological change in the past two decades than in all previous centuries combined. Things are changing so fast that we barely have time to steady ourselves after one technological wave, before another washes up on deck and sweeps us off our feet again.With AI, genetic engineering and robotics on the anvil, this pace is unlikely to let up anytime soon. It’s disrupting political, economic and social systems as well as cultural norms and social roles.How can we prepare our-selves and our children for a world of such unprecedented transformation and radical uncertainties?What should we teach to today’s babies that will help them survive and flourish in the world of 2050?Since we have no idea how the world and the job market will look like in 2050, we don’t really know what particular skills people will need. Perhaps, much of what kids learn today will likely be irrelevant by 2050. We might invest a lot of effort to teach kids how to code in C++ or how to speak chinese, only to discover that by 2050, AI can code software far better than humans, and a new Google Translate app enables you to conduct a conversation in almost flawless mandarin, Cantoneese or Hakka, even though you only know how to say “Ni Hao”. So what should we be teaching?This is why Babele joined the European consortium MILC, which is developing trainings to prepare the future generation of leaders to 21st century skills.We have identified over 20 skills for which we are developing thrilling courses, which will be experimented across 6 European countries throughout 2022!For more info, check out: www.chaord.eu ...

Getting Ready to Change

"To the eyes of a child, the world is huge… it looks limitless, full of diversity and of differences that set us apart. With time, we learn that the world has its limits… we learn that we are not that different, as we all strive for the same goals: health, happiness,...

Crowdsourcing social innovation: Towards a more collaborative & conscious capitalism

Crowdsourcing social innovation: Towards a more collaborative & conscious capitalism

The paradox of a global economy increasingly unified, and a global society increasingly divided is the most dangerous threat that weighs on the planet, because it makes difficult if not impossible, the cooperation necessary to solve the other problems. We need a bottom up, collaborative and open sourced approach, where people can actively participate in the development, implementation and replication of social good projects. I believe such ecosystem has the potential to accelerate the paradigm shift towards a more sustainable capitalism.
