Specifically, the Vision section contains;

  • The outputs from an 'Vision Session' held in India within which groups of experts worked toward developing a series of vision statements relevant to their local context
  • A fascinating series of one to one interviews held with prominent figures from education, business and policy
  • A set of resources - related information including websites, reports, video, audio - that provide further visionary content to explore and print

  • The outputs from an Action Session run in India with leading thinkers and practitioners identifying some of the ways in which, together, we can begin to move toward a more positive future
  • A set of resources- related information including websites, reports, video, audio - that provide further content to explore and print
