These Global Design Projects are the manifestation of everything I hope for in education. I hope they unite and inspire young people around the world to be proactive members of their communities and global citizens. I hope they bridge the rift between the classroom and the outside world as teachers and experts dialogue about new perspectives on the content we teach and students apply their interdisciplinary knowledge to solve real world problems. I hope they help students develop leadership and confidence and project management skills and help them realize their own unique potential. I wish this for all the students of the world as I wish it for my own child, the light of my life, Catherine Grace.
