What do you feel we need to learn in order to make the world a better place? This question was put to people across the world, people like you. But to avoid getting stuck in big talk with very little practical output, we invited them to look within themselves and to find things they would like to express and share: lessons learned through experience and personal interests, not via books or lectures. Often we think of change as a big, complicated process, and it is, but this sometimes makes it difficult to believe in the power of our own individual actions. Yet during and beyond 100 Days of Learning, these actions are precisely what matters. We believe that real transformation comes from within the individual. It is only when people embrace the new ideas and apply them within their own lives, that the bigger process of societal change happens.
Age of Wonderland 2017 presents 100 DAYS OF LEARNING, a global learning event to exchange valuable life experiences with peers. Doers and thinkers from around the world - innovators, scientists, engineers, artists, designers, social entrepreneurs - are invited to share their personal stories, ideas, and practice, not to be found in textbooks. Aim is to rediscover knowledge, challenge beliefs, and exchange life lessons with others. To make the world a better place, we need to embrace change on an individual level, and inspire others to do the same.
During World Design Event in Eindhoven (NL) the gathered knowledge and experiences are shared in daily talkshows, workshops, lectures and in an exhibition.
