Remembering Sir Ken Robinson
This month the HundrED Community lost an extraordinary man, Sir Ken Robinson. Sir Ken dedicated his career to promoting creativity, innovation, and a personalised approach to learning.
We continue to draw inspiration from his teachings. In 2016, we interviewed Sir Ken for a video series on educational thought leaders and change-makers around the world. He said that for him, “the purpose of education is to help young people understand the world around them and engage in the world within them.” You can watch the full interview on our YouTube Channel.
HundrED Opportunity Submission Form
We have created a new form for our Community members to submit any workshop, award, competition, webinar, talk, forum, or resources that you think may be of interest to the HundrED community. If you are interested in contributing you can do so here.

This month Vincent has led two exceptional virtual GLocals bringing together community members from Hong Kong, USA, Belgium, and Finland to share their expertise and contribute to the UNESCO Futures of Education discussions.
Vincent on hosting his first HundrED GLocal:
"I really enjoyed the opportunity to curate and host the first HundrED GLocals in Hong Kong! Following our keynote speakers' inspiring sharing, they transformed into facilitators as they hosted breakout discussions to collect ideas as part of the UNESCO Futures of Learning initiative. An amazing experience to showcase the best of Hong Kong's talent, learn from the cream of the HundrED crop, AND hear from a diverse audience on the future of education!"
