This experiential seminar cuts across multiple UN Development goals, but most directly relates to 4: Quality Education, 9: Industry, Innovation, Infrastructure, and 10: Reduced Inequality. We’ll participate in a quick experiential dive into these topics through the Human-Centered Design approach BUILD.org uses in our work in the Bay Area and nationally. Participants are asked to engage actively in a rapid design experience related to education and equity, reflecting on what it would take to redesign systems and habits in our own lives to achieve a more equitable and interconnected society.
For 25+ years, Ryan Oliver, ’94 has worked to build upon and apply many of the innovative practices he learned at Mount Madonna School to transform systems of education that sustain inequality and restrict creativity and innovation. His current role as Executive Director for BUILD.org’s Bay Area/LA region gives him a platform to unleash the creative genius in all young people regardless of zip code and is core to his life’s purpose.
All of the events in the series will be offered via Zoom. Tickets are available for a suggested donation of $20, and can be ordered via the speaker series website, sdgspeakerseries.org.Register!
