The acquisition of knowledge alone is no longer sufficient for them to survive and thrive in this new reality.

Thus allowing us to live more fulfilling and connected lives. Almost every educator now agrees that we need to consider creativity as a fundamental skill to be cultivated in schools.
HundrED in partnership with The LEGO Foundation released a Spotlight Report on Creativity to help answer the question: how can we effectively nurture creativity in education? The results of the report shows there is no shortage of practices and solutions currently being implemented in many parts of the world that are both impactful and scalable. It is our hope to inspire more education systems to adopt creativity as a critical component of students’ learning and development process.
