We need to empower ourselves to be the change.
Benjamin Southworth feels that the education system failed him, and his own poor academic record was a source of humiliation and embarrassment. A passionate advocate for structural change and governmental engagement with the digital past, present and future, he sought to change that education exchange. So, he founded a start-up that empowers teenagers aged 16-18 to learn coding, design, public speaking, and other fundamental skills to support them in finding meaningful work, faster. In this talk from CreativeMornings/London in February 2014, Ben speaks on the role of technology as a changemaker and how we should be using it more make change in our world. Oh, and in Ben’s words: do stuff; smile; be kind.
