Today kicked off Day 2 of the Global Student Leaders Summit in Davos, Switzerland with a keynote speech by Sir Ken Robinson. Robinson spoke about the future of education, with an emphasis on the role of creativity in education. Participating students were also broken up into their small groups, which consisted of students from around the world and focused on innovation and collaboration within the context of addressing global problems, such as climate change, poverty and renewable resources.
After Robinson’s speech, students then attended their assigned Innovation Sessions and Leadership Skills Workshops, followed by a Poetry Jam session, which was headlined by Clint Smith, PhD candidate at Harvard University.
After the day’s events, and once the rain stopped, the chaperones accompanied the students to a local bowling alley, where they burned off their extra energy after a 14-hour day.
