The Global Solutions Lab brings young people aged 15 to 26 together to research solutions to world problems.[i] To improve education they suggest UNICEF’s “School-In-A-Box” packed with supplies, lesson plans, and other resources for the over 100 million children not in school; mobile schools in buses; the UN Girls Education Initiative, peer teaching; Wi-Fi for Education to provide Internet access; WE CAN website for educators to share resources; and using schools as community education hubs in “Education for All for Life” including gardens, water catchment and energy production in SEED (Synergetic Educational Experience and Development). The researchers estimated that $15 billion would fund these programs for a year, including a self-sustaining demonstration school in each region.
