“I think I’d have a good few ideas that could change student life for the better, either for 2050 or the nearer future. But now is definitely the time to start thinking about them. I believe in free education, even for higher levels, and if we want to have that for 2050 we have to start making adjustments in our system now. If we make these changes and invest in the future, it will send out such a strong international message that morals will change. It would also be great to even out the massive shift between very religious secondary schools and not-so-religious universities, and make the education system more flexible. For example, balance out lessons from teaching purely logical thinking to using creativity. To implement more mental health activities, like body and mind classes where they teach how to address your feelings. I would also implement coding from a very early age. We don’t work in factories anymore. We need a new, more balanced education system.”
– This interview is part of a collaborative campaign with Dublin Chamber. Every Wednesday of this month we will be sharing some of the ideas Dubliners have for Dublin in 2050. The findings of The Great Survey will be used to drive the work of Dublin Chamber and sets out to ensure that Dublin becomes a better place to work, live and visit for both present and future generations.
Please take five minutes and tell us what do you want Dublin to be like for your kids and your grandkids? Pop-up hologram teachers? Solar taxi drones? No problem! Let’s make this city the city of the future!
Great ideas have no borders, The Great Survey it’s open to those who live outside of the city too. Click, fill, like and share: www.greatdublinsurvey.ie
