5 speakers you don't want to miss at ASU+GSV Summit

By Boclips on Mar 10, 2022 3:03:44 PM

This year’s ASU+GSV Summit theme, “Ed on the Edge,” could be interpreted as its authors intended: education on the brink of great, pioneering change. Education adapting and evolving. Education roaring ahead, into a future of equal access. 

Less charitably, “on the edge” might describe how people all over the world are feeling now, amid a prolonged global pandemic and recent outbreak of war. 

If you count yourself among the lucky, whose families are safe, we empathize with the anxieties you might yet have. If you or someone you know is affected by the war, our team at Boclips cannot express enough our sympathy and support. We are donating to Unicef, which is working to provide educational resources and other critical aid, such as hygiene products and safe drinking water, to Ukrainian children and families.

At the same time, we acknowledge how critical it remains that we carry on with our daily responsibilities and keep our larger mission in focus — to educate the next generation, who’ll shape the future. 

In that spirit, we’ve gathered a list of five influential speakers at this year’s 2022 ASU+GSV Summit who are building a brighter tomorrow. These industry leaders are helping inspire and inform today’s students. They affirm our commitment at Boclips to education and give us hope.

The theme of International Youth Day 2020 is youth engagement for global action. This year, we’re celebrating the work that young people have done to enrich and improve political institutions and processes on a local, national, and global level. Youth engagement is vital because it helps to “increase the fairness of political processes by reducing democratic deficits, contributes to better and more sustainable policies, and also has symbolic importance that can further contribute to restoring trust in public institutions, especially among youth” (source).
