This is her talk at the TED Conference in 2010, saying the world needs"childish" thinking: bold ideas, wild creativity and especially optimism.
Some of the important points from her talk are as follows:
· Kids aren't hampered as much as adults when it comes to thinking about reasons why not to do things. Kids can be full of inspiring aspirations and hopeful thinking.
· Kids still dream about perfection. And that's a good thing because in order to make anything a reality, you have to dream about it first.
· In many ways, our audacity to imagine helps push the boundaries of possibility
· Kids already do a lot of learning from adults, and we have a lot to share
· I think that adults should start learning from kids. Learning between grown-ups and kids should be reciprocal.
I feel the time has come for all of us to find that child in us, the one who is uninhibited, who can imagine, who can create and who can bring about a change in this world.
