Global Facilitator and Change-maker, RoundTable Global - The Legacy Project
My name is Ulpa and I am a Global Facilitator and change-maker at RoundTable Global. I deliver empowerment programmes in 30 countries and across three generations that challenges the way we think and see the world.
I have been in Learning and Development for over 20 years and am passionate about changing the paradigm of education so that young people are prepared for the world we live in today. I was working initially within the travel industry but for the last 6 years have been with RoundTable Global within the field of empowerment and youth groups. I also head up our charity The Legacy Project which gives back to communities and supports youth development.
I am a TEDx speaker and recently did a talk about the effect of the global pandemic on our fragile food system. I am a passionate foodie and have been on the journey to really think about our impact on the planet and the effect of what we consume has on it.Why do you want to be a part of the HundrED Community?
I truly believe that collaboration is key to make huge waves across the globe. Having found HundrED and a network of like-minded individuals that are passionate education too it was imperative that I joined the community. I want to bring change to the way we learn and if we have learnt anything in the last year, it is that the time for change is now.How can education support students to flourish?
Education happens everywhere and throughout your whole life. We never stop learning and if we think we have nothing to learn then there is no point in us being here. Students education is just the start and we can build on this by helping them understand that everything and everyone is to learn from. They will not only flourish but lead an effortless life.What role does innovation play in education change?
Innovation, Creativity and Play is at the core of educational change. If we can be innovative and creative in the way we teach and what we teach then there is no limit to the benefits for young people. With innovation we can create intrigue, passion and a love of learning. Not just for students but for teachers and beyond the classroom too.Three HundrED innovations you love. (and Why?)
1. Wholistic Teacher Development - I love their ethos that everyone is a teacher and a student. Learning for teachers is just as important as the learning for the students. 2. Education Cities - definitely something I agree with. When you can educate a whole community, then everyone thrives. 3. Eco schools - not only helping a community to thrive but also rejuvenating the environment.Three innovations you would love for HundrED to know about. (and Why?)
