Symposium 3 - Safety Versus Safetyism
Symposium 4 - What Should Children Learn to Prepare for an Unknowable Future

Goal of Conference

Presented by Educational Communities Worldwide, NYU Mindful Education Lab, and Aspen Center for Human Development.

The future is unknowable. Humans have always fallen short when predicting what the future would look like, and schools have always made children pay the price for misunderstanding both their nature and the changing nature of society.

This conference brings together global stakeholders, education experts, students and teachers— young and old—to discuss education.  Discussions will center on what education looks like now, and what it needs to become to help children learn to solve the problems of today, and to confront the problems of an unknowable future.
