BE INSPIRED TO JUMP OUT OF YOUR BUBBLE!
We entered the Decade of Action towards reaching the UN global goals, and mitigating global catastrophic risk is more urgent than ever. While 2020 is throwing us a curveball, making global challenges ever more salient, we refuse to be defeated! We need to find new perspectives in order to reach solutions.
Through the Global Challenges educational track, our students gain deeper insight into environmental and social challenges – all in order to influence and make a difference in their roles as future decision makers. “Bubble-hopping” is one of the methods that we have used in Global Challenges, and the theme for this year’s Expo. Students were asked to become aware of the bubble they are living in and deliberately step out of it, visit and connect on a deeper level with people in different bubbles.
We invite you to jump outside your bubble too, and be inspired by students' solutions as they find their way to contribute with solutions to global challenges!
