Every individual is the every mind we are talking about. Every mind has thinking ability and can have solutions to address the problems in the world and society. Understanding this factor of every individual’s unique thinking ability, an International school in Germany conducted an open event called as “A festival to open up your mind”. The students of grade 5 to 7 were called upon to express their thoughts upon the current systems, their problems and a solution if any available by them. The students from many schools gathered and opened up their views on various topics. They addressed many issues and tried to express their own world. It was interesting to see the little minds addressing the major topics in the world today and finding innovative solutions as per their own understanding.
Here are some of the best features about such activity:
