Thursday, June 8, 2017 - 15:15 to 16:30
The European Development Days Young Leaders 2016 raised ‘transforming mindsets’ as one of their key messages to global leaders on the implementation of 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. As follow up, we will explore the influences of young people's mindsets in the increasingly interconnected 21st century. This session will offer a cross-cultural compendium of solutions on how to empower young people across the world to think innovatively and critically about resolving the persistent challenges of sustainable development. The session will focus on transforming education systems and the influence of social media on young people's mindsets. We will explore solutions to transform education and leverage rapidly growing online education resources to move beyond simply knowledge to build values as well as transform mindsets and attitudes among learners.
