Dialogues on Education - #GenZSolvers from Around the World
About the Live Session
Worldview believes that Generation-Z around the world has the power to bring about a transformative change in society by solving some of the biggest problems facing humankind today. In a highly connected world that is equipped with incredibly powerful tools and technologies, individuals are empowered more than ever before with the ability to bring about change. In such a scenario, a critical role of education is to develop the next generation’s curiosity around the issues that need attention and to inspire them to take action!
The objective of this panel discussion is to listen to the powerful stories of three Gen Z Solvers and understand where, how and what inspired their solver journeys and understand their views on the critical role of education in building a generation of solvers!
Solver Profiles: Abraham M. Keita, or Keita for short, was born during Liberia’s brutal civil war. He was just 9 years old when he first participated in a peaceful protest after a 13-year old girl in his community was raped and murdered. Since then, Keita has championed various initiatives as an advocate and activist for children's rights. In 2012 his efforts were rewarded with the Children’s Act being signed into law in Liberia. In 2015, Keita addressed the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates on the refugee crisis, and on the importance of justice and safety for children.
Mariann Avila is from Mexico and she is an advocate for education. She was privileged to be brought up in a family of teachers in a world where education is a right reserved for some. So she started School on the Road to help other children whose road to education has not been as fortuitous as hers.
At 15 years old, Garvita Gulhati started “Why Waste?” an organization educating citizens about creative ways to reduce water waste — starting with restaurants where four million gallons of water are wasted per year in India.
