Since the Summit
Since the Learning 2030 Summit and the subsequent publishing of the Learning 2030 Blueprint, WGSI has engaged in a series of impact activities aimed at making the recommendations made in the Learning 2030 Blueprint a reality.
LEARNING 2030 BLUEPRINT LAUNCH
|The official launch of the Learning 2030 Blueprint and learning2030.org took place at the World Literacy Summit in Oxford, UK featuring a panel discussion with contributors Michael Brooks, Samuel Levin, and Susan Opok.
Master of Design Experience Innovation students from the University of Waterloo Stratford Campus developed a digital platform for the Learning 2030 Blueprint which has since been archived. Learn more about the project here.
SPROUTING GREAT IDEAS WITH TAKINGITGLOBAL
|Sponsored by WGSI, thirty young education leaders took part in Taking It Global's Sprout E-Course to develop their ideas into actionable projects. Watch participants Bryson McLachlan and Ajoke Omoware share their Sprout experience.
LEARNING 2030 FELLOWSHIP & IDEATION GRANTS
Graduates of the the Sprout e-Course were eligible to apply for up to $5000 CAD in funding through WGSI's Learning 2030 Fellowship Program and up to $1000 CAD through WGSI's Ideation Grant Program. This financial support has aided youth-led projects in Nigeria, Pakistan, India, Canada, and the United States.
ENGAGING WITH EDUCATORS ACROSS CANADA
|WGSI became an initiative partner of the EdCan Network's (Canadian Education Association's) regional workshop series The Challenge to Change. These gatherings of teachers, administrators, students, and policy makers took place in Fredericton, NB, Winnipeg, MB, St. Catharines, ON, Vancouver, BC, and Montreal, QC.WGSI was a supporting sponsor of the resulting national symposium in Toronto, ON at which WGSI staff and Learning 2030 Summit alumni were featured in The Great Education Debate. The Challenge to Change report summarized the pan-Canadian dialogue.
The Learning 2030 Blueprint Workshop, hosted in partnership with the University of British Columbia's Teacher Education Office, brought together Vancouver-area teachers, administrators, students, and teacher educators to discuss the future of education.

STUDENT VOICE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
WGSI sponsored the enrollment of over 50 teachers across Canada in TakingITGlobal's Student Voice Professional Development Course. This course is designed to help educators understand the value of cultivating and engaging student voice both inside and outside the classroom.
ACKNOWLEDGING CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS
€423,000 in EU Erasmus+ Funding was awarded to the Acknowledging Critical Thinking Skills (ACTS) program that was, in part, inspired by the Learning 2030 Summit. Learn more about how an article written by Learning 2030 Summit Curator Michael Brooks inspired this ambitious project.
