Speakers

Ronald Beghetto

University of Connecticut

What can be done to help young people respond productively to the challenges of a changing world? How are we preparing them to tackle macro-problems, such as the rapid depletion of natural resources, increasingly severe inequalities, the erosion of democracy, and the spread of dangerous dogmas? Big problems don't always require big solutions. In this Future20 session you will learn how taking the small step of cultivating students' creative imagination can lead to more hopeful futures.
