Sowmya: Education is supposed to inspire young people to equip them to work, earn a living, and help solve the great challenges in their villages, their country, and the world. The problem is, mainstream education in India stifles creativity and fails to prepare young people for work or life. The substandard education, an explosion in the working-age population, and ever-more-urgent challenges facing the world put India on a collision course for the future. But there is a way forward. Experiential learning puts an emphasis on creativity, innovation, and collaboration. At Lead by Design, we enable young people to unlock their creative potential to build an equitable, resilient, and thriving future.
