The School of the Future will need to be much more than a mere conveyor of knowledge.

It has a duty to prepare children for the unforeseen – with knowledge, skills and competencies.

We are just catching a glimpse of the powerful digital tools we will have at our disposal. Let’s make sure to teach our kids how to use them skillfully, but wisely!

After a number of years in banking and asset management, Amalja Maier decided it was about time to roll up her sleeves and pursue her many other interests, especially in the more organizational and operational aspects of life. Following a stint of advanced training at the Center of Philanthropy Studies / Basel University, she is keen to help build an organization dedicated to the future-oriented education of our children.
