small is MASSIVE!
Join us for DAY 3 of #ODA2020 on 29 October at “Future-Ready Skills Day”, with Heads, Hands and Hearts. Appropriate Education and future skills are key to develop thriving futures! Let’s focus on the future of humanity – on the young minds we need to empower and enable so that they can design their own preferred futures as part of a world they will be proud to live, work and play in.
Now is the time for educators and parents to action small seeds of change everywhere, to learn how to develop Creative Intelligence and future skills in every child.
