OUR SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
True Value Innovator Sonja: when I was studying on Stanford, I felt it was important to learn my child Dorian, at that moment still a toddler, the necessary mindset to be able to create his own future. Then I saw him grewing up, and I did see, what they told us on Stanford, children are design thinkers by nature!
Research shows us that our school system is still not adapted to learn our children to be future proof in this new disruptive era. I did see schools in California and even in Harlem, even public ones, where they are doing it already totally different, as from préschool.
“I don’t have to learn my little boy the right mindset, but I have to help him not to loose it and to strengthen it”.
For me this was an eye-opener.
At this moment, in the first grades at school, I see how diffecult it is, to fit in the system while keeping this natural and necessary mindset to become future ready. We want to help the government to change the school system, but since it isn’t going fast enough, we did decide to create:
TRUE VALUE INNOVATORS
CHILDRENS FUTURE READINESS AND PROOF READINESS PROGRAM
For concepts: the best way to create new concepts/products is to team up with your future stakeholders, so my son Dorian became a team member. This is the best decision we did make. We make now courses, really the way children like it, and Dorian learns to be, very young, to work in an agile team. A win-win situation.
Even more, some business cases, we ask Dorian for input. Amazing what ideas come up when you ask a kid about it. We are certainly motivated to put children, elderly,…and co, in innovation teams.
Coming soon more!
