You are a railway worker in the American Midwest in 1923. You stack the tracks from ladder to ladder, steel rod to steel rod. The work follows a strict process, and every day you have a certain goal to reach. The goal, standard to all, is based on the building phase of your most muscular co-worker. “It is reachable to him so it should be reachable to all”, they say. But how someone who is 20cm shorter and half as physically strong can possibly stand a chance?
Co-creation and interaction is at the heart of Dare to Learn. With 60% of the program being participatory, it is only fitting to spread that mindset beyond the main event itself. On top of all the developments from the sharper focus to the new venue, we still don't want to forget our wonderful traditions. All daring enthusiasts and visionaries, let us hear you: The call for actual sessions at the event is open - for everyone!
Dare to Learn would not be possible without our amazing volunteers. The program and marketing teams are at it and now it is time for the second round of recruitments! There are a number of super interesting roles open so check them out and apply!
The series continues! The second newbie in the team is our Head of Marketing and Communications Anni Mansikkaoja, who heard about Dare to Learn for the first time in December. Needless to say, it was love at first sight.
