Join us Monday, May 6 at 13:00 at the Aalto University Design Factory for the presentation of their Education Challenge. Solutions were developed collaboratively between students at 21 Design Factories in over a dozen countries. The challenge this season was to propose potential solutions to motivate Syrian refugee children who have been dropping out of school in large numbers to continue their education.

Secretary General

"The advances of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, including those brought on by a combination of computing power, robotics, big data and artificial intelligence, are generating revolutions in health care, transport and manufacturing.  
I am convinced that these new capacities can help us to lift millions of people out of poverty, achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and enable developing countries to leap‑frog into a better future."
