The TEDxKCS event on Monday 30th June will be an exploration into the successful use of collaboration, particularly the pursuit of excellence across divides and through human learning and development. The day will run in two sections: firstly, we will look at how our natural disposition is to not collaborate and how we can and have in fact overcome this. We will then look at how we can use collaboration in order to foster the new generation and educate our children as best we can for a future that we have no idea of. The conference has attracted a wide range of influential speakers from the school’s own Nick d’Alosio who collaborated with one of the world’s biggest businesses to change the way we look at news; to Marissa Peer who has assisted Olympians and footballers on how to manage the conflicts they encounter in their high pressure lives and finally Lily Cole who has shown through her website ‘impossible.com’ how – if we are given a means – human nature wants to collaborate in order to benefit others. The team of staff and students who have organised the event hope that it will spark ideas amongst both the school and worldwide community as to how we can better collaborate to foster a sense of creative cohesiveness amongst the new 21st century generation so that we can truly get the best out of the new global generation.
