I'm excited to announce that Flow In Action is partnering with UNIGE and Genilem to create and deliver training for the Best Ideas Competition - Concours de la Meilleure Idée - the pivotal event during Global Entrepreneurship Week Geneva 2020.
This training is all about engaging and supporting youth with practical skills, as the new generation of activists and innovators, taking them on their start-up entrepreneurship journey from ideas to pitch.

Check out my latest article online at Sovereign Magazine exploring the future of climate action after lockdown.
What does the future of look like now? It’s a deliberate question. We are, after all, our future selves: what gets seeded now unfolds in the future. To change it, we have to imagine it differently, in order to turn it into reality.

On 24th June 2020, I ran a free webinar as part of the fantastic Learning Revolution series.
You can register on the Learning Revolution platform for free and watch the recording here:
More than ever, teachers and librarians want to connect children and youth to the resources to enable them to flourish in today’s uncertain world as problem-solvers for the planet.
Wonder is an essential, and frequently under-estimated tool for doing this.
Consciously using and inspiring wonder, cultivates creative thinking, increases positive emotions, deepens a mindful connection to Nature and capacity-builds key skills used in innovation and entrepreneurship.
This interactive session will give you strategies for using wonder through reading and across academic subject learning, to engage your students of all ages.
You will learn:

I was so delighted to work with Capacity Zurich again this morning giving an online resilience for entrepreneurs workshop, as part of their Launch programme. Capacity is a talent and start-up incubator for entrepreneurs of refugee and migrant backgrounds. It's always such an honour to spend time with the incredible participants and team; it's such a wonderful community to be part of. Can't wait to see you all face-to-face in the near future.

I'm delighted to tell you about the Commonwealth Girls In ICT Creativity & Innovation Challenge, exploring ideas to make education and learning more inclusive for all children; and to ask you to invite young people to join in.
Designed and run by the Commonwealth Businesswomen’s Network (CBWN), Flow In Action and GSMA, this is an international inclusive event for girls and boys, inviting them to engage, explore and experience UN Sustainable Development Goal 4 on Quality Education and Goal 5 on Gender Equality.
What had originally been planned as a face-to-face workshop for 30 girls in London, was turned upside down by COVID-19. With more than 1.5 billion students now out of school during the COVID-19 pandemic, we got together to see how we could help. From a brief conversation two weeks ago, the challenge has emerged and we are excited to share this as a free interactive online event for girls and boys ages 8-16 years old in Commonwealth countries and beyond.
This is an opportunity for your young people to:
· Learn digital skills
· Create incredible innovative ideas for inclusive education for all children
· Connect across the globe as problem-solvers
Powered by our tech platforms of Hazu and World Labs, you can get involved in the challenge with your children and youth from 23 April 2020 until 23 June 2020. Take part on the day and then as an ongoing project.
Educators, librarians, youth workers: get your students involved to connect across the globe, learning digital skills as they use their creativity and generate incredible ideas to solve the innovation challenge.
Parents: get your kids involved in the challenge as a home-schooling creativity activity as they learn digital skills and share their incredible ideas for creating inclusive education.
Students: Your creativity counts! Take part in the challenge with children across the world, learn digital skills and share your incredible ideas for creating inclusive education for all children.
Discover more about the challenge at www.cbwn.org and be ready to register and enter the interactive classroom on the 23rd April 2020.
We are so excited to see the incredible ideas of young people emerging over the course of the challenge, and we will be sharing their voices with you, as a community taking action for the planet.

I wonder what you wonder...about a drop of water?
A question for kids of all ages...so feel free to have a go too.
Share this with your kids and get them wondering...as a homeschooling activity.
When we wonder, we connect to our imagination and creativity. We see things from new perspectives. We problem solve in different ways.
Wondering keeps us well and hopeful.
Your kids can share their ideas on the platform at this link. https://hazu.io/flowinaction.org/wonderlab
Also...if you're an educator, librarian, youth worker ...then sign up for the online training with me for creating your own Kids Wonder Lab for your organisation at www.flowinaction.org/wonder
