"Want to make a billion dollars? Help a billion people." Peter Diamandis, futurist and scientist.
Children are increasingly using their own creativity, imagination, and intelligence, to help positively affect the world. Children as young as 9 years old have created ideas, inventions, and projects to add value to the world, and to help solve some of our greatest challenges such as poverty alleviation, offsetting disease, nutrition, the digital divide, food security, water, energy, and more.
This panel discussion will include presentations by experts in the fields of education, community, service and the business sectors, followed by a panel discussion on how we can guide, nurture, and support these young talents to identify and follow their passions.
While creating their own futures, our young leaders are also helping to solve some of the world's biggest challenges.
