Failure is often turned down in our society, which only promotes success and achievement. Failure is a powerful tool for improvement though, and can lead to extraordinary creative results.

Set the tone for a creative learning environment by giving students creative control over their homeroom. Empower students to modify the layout of desks, walls, and cubbies, and give them the freedom to decorate their open space.

Creative workplace design can definitely be applied to classroom design (and vice-versa)

Local communities often invest significant resources in making sure their public spaces look great. Gardening is a perfect way for seniors to exercise and continue creating. Let's repurpose civic landscaping to enable our seniors to do more.

Hey Carole, I'd really appreciate it if you'd be part of the team helping me to refine this idea. Your questions are a great starting point.

Young people marketing and distributing organic veggies grown by seniors means cross-generational interaction, healthy activity  and income for the elderly, entrepreneurial opportunities for young adults, and healthy food and living for all!

Great feedback, Carole! Would love for you to continue to advise on this concept as it evolves.

Contrary to popular perception seniors are not helpless. Numerous groups have formed around activities which benefit themselves and society.

Rather than imposing a solution on seniors, why not empower them to organically form more groups?

Thanks to adding me to your virtual team Wenjie. I look forward to engaging in further conversation and seeing the concept evolving and improving thanks to other OpenIdeators :)

Carole commented on Open Space, by us! - Rethinking Homerooms

This is a brilliant idea Wenjie! Starting in schools to re-design the learning environment, we could even think of expanding it to workplaces, so that adults can keep their creative confidence in creative workplaces that also reflect their identity. If the experiment is successful in schools, maybe young people who have gone through it could share their experience with employees in companies working in their communities. They could even facilitate similar open space design sessions in these companies, a nice way for them to apply the skills they will have developed thanks to the support of professional designers helping them in the classroom!

Definitely agree with you Dina, we should think big and make it longer - 10 days - to increase students' ownership!
