Imagine If...



From bestselling author Ken Robinson, a guide for re-imagining education and schools to help our children thrive in the turbulent world they've inherited

Imagination and creativity are at the root of every uniquely human achievement and those achievements have brought us to this present moment.

We are now the largest population in human history: seven and half billion people, rising to nine billion by 2050. Our technologies are evolving exponentially, but spiritually and emotionally, we're not keeping pace. Our
appetites are straining the earth's capacity to sustain us, and our attempts to force it to do so are fuelling a holocaust of other species. Communities across the globe are still locked in ancient cultural conflicts, and while the majority of people are materially more comfortable than ever before, there are global epidemics of depression and anxiety.

To meet these existential challenges, we have to harness our creativity to a more compassionate and sustainable vision of the world we want to live in and the lives we hope to lead. To do that, we have to create new systems of education for the future and for our children that are based on organic principles of diversity, creativity, and collaboration.
