GUNI Call for Student Videos: 'The World We Imagine'

This is a very exciting opportunity for higher education students around the world to voice their visions on transformative knowledge in higher education. The videos will be presented at the Global University Network for Innovation (GUNi) 6th International Barcelona Conference on Higher Education, which will take place in 13-15 May 2013, and will be featured on our Website (www.guninetwork.org). Furthermore, a synthesis of all contributions will be published in our upcoming report “Higher Education in the World 5”.
We are living through a crisis of scale, a crisis that affects all systems and that requires a new understanding of reality, a new conscience, and a new way of organizing the collective in all areas, overcoming the undesired effects of the old models. A positive transformation will depend on all of the responses that we will be able to articulate in the present and near future.

In this context, the role of students is essential, since you will be the main protagonists of tomorrow. Thus, GUNi is giving you a unique opportunity to bring your ideas to the higher education community. Make a 2-3 minute video interpreting the statement “The World We Imagine”. What world would you like to live in? What tools can make your imagined world work? Share with us your ideal future!

Please, we are asking students to upload their videos to Youtube and send the link to Chrystal Tremblay's email at crystal@uvic.ca.
