Ep 04 – Social Entrepreneurship

By Nick Burnett

What does it take to raise and educate amazing kids? How can we best prepare them for the astonishing future that is coming up? The research and everyday options can sometimes seem overwhelming, and so, in this series of podcasts, Nick Burnett and Tony Ryan will offer some practical insights for educators and parents alike. With a focus on 12-year-old Georgie, who will be 32 years old in 2039 AD, they will outline a number of key elements on what is needed to help her live a fulfilling life.

n Episode 4, Nick and Tony clarify why Georgie (and every other child) needs to become both entrepreneurial and philanthropic. The powerful combination of these two concepts is known as social entrepreneurialism, which will become a critical characteristic of a successful young adult in the next two decades.

Direct reference is made to:

– Many practical examples of social entrepreneurialism
– The ways in which online connection and high tech can support this concept
– The capabilities that children will need in order to thrive in this field
The actions that educators and parents can take today to help children become empathic and socially just
