Description: Christel Scholten, of ReosPartners Brazil has been working for over a year with key stakeholders in the Brazilian education system to help them think together about the future of education in Brazil. 4 possible futures – transformative scenarios for 2032 will be presented as well as how the team of 41 key leaders in the education field in Brazil developed them.
This is a free webinar that arises from June 2015 publication of a Special Issue of the Journal of Corporate Citizenship on large systems change, with an introductory article by the editors Large systems change: an emerging field of transformation and transitions…all summarized in a blog by Steve Waddell. The editors felt this work deserves further advancing, and one way of doing this is through a seminar series in conjunction with Emerging Potential…an initiative to address complex challenges at scale.
Go here to see the Sept. 8 webinar of this series. It features Mark Clark, the CEO of Generations for Peace who provides a view of their work for sustainable conflict transformation at the grassroots, by empowering volunteer leaders of youth to promote active tolerance and responsible citizenship in communities experiencing different forms of conflict and violence. Carefully-facilitated sport-based games, art, advocacy, dialogue and empowerment activities provide an entry point to engage children, youth and adults, and a vehicle for integrated education and sustained behavioural change. They are working with over 8000 youths in more than 50 countries.
