What happened at the Thriving Online Expedition in September 2021
Last month we gathered students from around the world for the biggest ever edition of The Global Learning Expedition. Students worked over 7 days in international and interdisciplinary teams to address the challenge of ‘Thriving Online’ in education, in society and in the digital workplace.
Participants heard from Airbus, Google, Capgemini, Siemens, AWS, Total, Kuehne + Nagel and Adidas with workshops on intercultural team work, nailing your pitch, and an introduction to Human Centered Design. We also heard from a leading global expert on embedding sustainability into education, culminating with live presentations in front of an expert jury.
