Mamur commented on How does YOUR dream world look like?

I like the collaboration of the youth to turn their dream world into a reality. I think I should share my experience here.

I always liked ghost stories and cartoons and loved reading about Halloween in the US. However, we did not have any Halloween back in Bangladesh. So, I decided to make my own ghosts and in fact turned an unused room to a haunted house. I filled the room with horrible looking ghosts and ghouls (I didn't buy a single thing from store, all hand made) and even automated some of them so that if anybody entered the room, would instantly get scared by those! It worked perfectly and was an excellent space to practice my creativity - for years.

I think that if the young generation gets some space and encouragement to make their dream world, it will help them a lot to be creative. Some collaboration would definitely strengthen their confidence as well because even if one fails, someone else would help to succeed in the end.

Thanks Jeff. Yes, in neighborhood level, something like "The Creative Hub" can be built. Which are kind of like mini theme parks. And during the design and implementation phase, young people can take part in activities to make their dreams come true.

Good point. Yes, the Captain's character can be set as a role-model so that children are encouraged to follow her. So, her values for providing and receiving feedback will be helpful to build the concept of collaboration in children.
