ESSAY CONTEST 2024

THE NEXT EDUCATION

 

We hear from people of all ages that change in the world is very hard to understand—much less to manage—and is bound to get even more so. But they seem to have different trends in mind. What about you? Do you see a world going “crazy” and if so, in what way? When you envision your own work and life ahead, are you worried by technological change—or is it political, ecological, psychological, or some other kind of disruption you wish you felt more prepared for? In your essay, first tell us the greatest source(s) of turbulence you see ahead, then reflect on what kind of leadership that demands. What capacities will you and your peers need more of to work together productively and navigate the turbulence? Whether it’s  decision-making or systems-thinking faculties, or moral compass orientation or abilities to recognize and motivate talent, has your education  put enough emphasis on it? What does this imply for the institutions and people entrusted with teaching your generation? If you could design the “next education,” how would its focus change?
