What next for education?

About this Event

Our kids face an increasingly uncertain future. Rising inequality, diminishing wellbeing, extremism, automation and climate change are just a few of the hurdles the next generation will have to overcome. What do we need to do to ensure we’re setting up all of our children for success?

On April 17th 5x15 is convening a special event at Wilton’s Music Hall to ask five eminent experts: what comes next for our kids? Writer and activist Owen Jones argues for a society, and an education system, that works for everyone. Poet and teacher Kate Clanchy shares the story of teaching poetry in a school inclusion unit. Entrepreneur Priya Lakhani OBE, founder of Century Tech, shows how AI and neuroscience will transform learning. Historian David Kynaston talks about the history of British Public Schools. Campaigner Melissa Benn outlines her vision for comprehensive education. Our host for the evening is Alex Beard, author of Natural Born Learners, which takes readers on a global tour into the future of learning.
