Skills for now and in the future
To have a thriving and prosperous community, we need young people to be enterprising so they can create long term, sustainable economic and social impact.
Young people will need to be life-long learners, innovative and creative thinkers, problem solvers, able to collaborate and be good communicators. Through EDfutures the Fogarty Foundation is creating initiatives to help enable these skills and develop entrepreneurial mindsets.
We need to energise a new generation who see entrepreneurialism not as something that a few people ‘do’ but rather as a way of working and thinking that underpins something that anyone can ‘be’.
To succeed in this ever-changing world, students need to be able to think like entrepreneurs: resourceful, flexible, creative and global
Through EDfutures the Fogarty Foundation is creating initiatives to help enable these skills and develop entrepreneurial mindsets. The Foundation will initially be working with secondary and tertiary students, providing them with inspiration, training, support and networking to equip them with the means for success.
Consider taking more unconventional careers…consider entrepreneurship.
