Topics that are essential to us as teachers!

Get the newest research, insights and opinions of leading scientists, politicians, business managers and authors on human potential and the ideas economy in the 21st century at THE ECONOMIST CONFERENCE: The Ideas Economy – Human Potential, September 15th and 16th, 2010 – Chelsea Piers, NYC.


Today, humanity is on track to advance physically, economically, and intellectually more than ever before. But there are still serious challenges ahead. For instance, how do we educate billions of new people in the coming decades—and manage their successful entry into the global economy—in an age of high unemployment and aging demographics? It is this kind of global challenge that can only be resolved by bringing together the smartest minds from government, academia and business—including education, human resources, healthcare, design, policy, science and technology—to debate tough issues and collaborate on practical solutions. With a new workforce that will be unlike any ever seen—a generation of young workers demanding entirely new work environments, and an aging population that requires heavy resources—the nature of work and talent development must evolve dramatically. The Ideas Economy: Human Potential event is an opportunity to understand these important issues from every perspective—and meet the leaders who can help optimise human potential, for individuals, companies, and society at large in the decades to come.

Music curated and performed by Evelyn Troester (Ed.D. candidate, Teachers College, Columbia University) on “Creativity, leadership and the emotional rippling effect” featuring:
