Summit: ldn18


Length: 16:10


The future of our creative nation is in the hands of the next generation. Young people are ambitious, creative and capable of rethinking the world and solving tomorrow's problems today. And can do it all with a social conscience that will let them build a better world in the process. We hear from a range of educators to consider how best to back those young people and reconsider some of our approaches to creative education.
