Create the Change

We live in a world of constant change. Our theme for this year addresses our capacity to be and to create the positive change we want.

Change can be chaotic. It can be accidental or purposeful. Our goal at School of the Nations is for change to be inspired and driven by noble ideals. We strive to empower our students to create change for the better and to take an active role in society by using their creativity to solve global problems. Learning should lead us from study to application, from beliefs to transformation. We need imagination and creativity to transform ourselves and our society to reflect the values we cherish.

A caterpillar transforms into a butterfly because it is designed for metamorphosis. We, on the other hand, have the power of imagination and can change our inner and outer environments in myriad ways.

Albert Einstein said, ‘Imagination is more important than knowledge.’ This is because it is imagination that drives questioning and discovery, which lead to innovation.

Gandhi said, ‘Be the change you wish to see in the world.’

We can think of our inner environment, our minds, and our outer environment, our community, as fields where anything can potentially grow and develop. We have the power to change wastelands into gardens. We have the power to contribute to the evolution of society by creating sustainable solutions to issues that challenge humankind’s health, well-being, and existence.

At School of the Nations, we encourage students to learn in order to serve, and to unleash their potentials to create the change the world needs.
