Global Education Conference

On Monday, I had the privilege of leading a session on youth empowerment and design thinking. My aim was to inform adults who wanted to empower youth to create change, as well as students who want to learn more about how they can make a difference regardless of their age. During the conference session, I talked about my experience as a student leading change, starting at a local scale, by volunteering with local homeless/disadvantaged youth, to managing international projects in the areas of financial literacy, education, and youth empowerment.


Then, I presented the design thinking process and some ideas on how it can be taught to youth through the lens of solving local and global problems. Lastly, I talked about ways teachers can globalize their classrooms and empower students to start thinking about problem-solving and creating tangible change, regardless of their age. You can view my slides below and a recording of the presentation & my answers to audience questions below that.
