ACS EVENTS: THE WORLD NEEDS…
If 2020 has proved anything, it’s that the world is incredibly unpredictable and forecasting what the current generation’s lives will look like in 10, 20 years’ time is an increasingly impossible task. It is widely noted that we are living through a fourth industrial revolution, defined by rapid technological change - even before the turbulence of this year, it has been estimated that 85% of the jobs that will exist in 2030 haven't even been invented yet. In stark contrast to this advancement, we are also acutely aware of the pressing climate crisis that, if not acted upon immediately, is set to devastate all corners of the globe.
In this world that is constantly in flux, how do the students of today get ready for whatever is to come tomorrow? What knowledge, skills and attributes do they require, and how do they acquire them?
In a new event series hosted by ACS International Schools, you are invited to delve into the big challenges with us and consider exactly what kind of citizen does the world need to contribute to a better, more sustainable tomorrow? Open to ACS parents and students, as well as the wider community interested in building a sustainable future, the ‘What the world needs’ series aims to inform and inspire, supporting the young people of today to become the change makers of tomorrow. In true ACS fashion, contributors from all over the world will be invited to share their experiences and provide an international perspective on what it is we need to get ready.

ACS Open Days & Virtual Open Days
At ACS we see student achievement as a personal experience. Our ethos inspires children to be open-minded and curious, capable of great accomplishments when encouraged and challenged. We realise this through exceptional teaching and a curriculum built on the world-renowned International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes.
