It’s your turn…

It’s your turn…help raise awareness (and solutions!) related to the education crisis – not just in Latin America but in the world at large.

I am a finalist in the Inter American Development Bank (IADB — or BID in Spanish) Graduate XXi competition. It seems they liked my idea about applying design thinking to education!

Voting opened today and continues to the end of February. Please go to this link, read my idea and vote for me if you like it. That’s it. It takes less than a minute.

If you want to “pay it forward”, share my idea with your network and get them to give me their vote if they like my idea. Here is my recent blog post with a bit more explanation of my idea.

Thanks so very much!

Complexity and Education in Latin America

Last month I submitted an idea to the Inter American Development Bank on how to get students more “engaged” with education in Latin America. It’s my response to a troubling problem: nearly 1 out of every 2 young people in Latin America does not finish high school. You can find my idea to the IDB “Graduate XXI” competition here in English or in Spanish (choose Spanish option at top of page).

For me, education is the basis for building better societies, communities and businesses. It’s the foundation for us to convert our ideas into reality.

Would love to get your feedback as I have another interesting idea on designing a better education system which I will share with you soon!
