The Future of Skills

How do we prepare for the future? What should we learn - and how? Do we even know what skills we need in the future when 65% of our kids will have jobs that aren't invented yet*?

Join the next salon at Niels Brock Auditoriet (Julius Thomsens Plads 10, 1925 Frederiksberg C) on March 29th from 15:00 to 18:00 and prepare for an afternoon of stimulating discussions and practical examples about how education is being revolutionized.
