We are at a unique place in time where the new digital economy is opening unprecedented opportunities for students. Transformation in education and business is challenging the way we think and how we should respond to the future. Once again, the pioneers and groundbreakers will lead the way. Destination Imagination seeks to ensure that students receive the soft-skills training and business acumen to challenge conventional processes. The ability to design the future and to imagine new ways of combining old with new will be a game-changing skill for these students. Diversity and multi-cultural perspectives are important objectives for our organization and our efforts this year will seek to make inroads into new student populations.

Two years ago someone had an idea… an idea that Destination Imagination could play host to an educational conference that would bring together educators–both formal and informal–to help spread the word that students around the world should have every opportunity to experience deep, meaningful learning in fun, encouraging and exciting environments. This past weekend in Dallas, TX, that idea became a reality.
July 21, 2014I have been in DI for six years. During those six years, I have learned a lot about teamwork, responsibility, and how to be creative. But I never imagined how greatly the last two years would impact my life—how it would permanently change who I am and how I do things. This is the story of the S.A.V.E. team.
