Join us at Children, Inc. on Sept 18, 2015 for Character Day, a day of thousands of events around the globe where people will simultaneously premiere short powerful and entertaining films, dive into resources from scientists, educators, and media experts, and join an online global Google Hangout exploring how to live meaningful, successful, and purposeful lives in today’s 24/7 world.
Character Day launched last year with the global premiere of our film “The Science of Character” along with an online Q&A with experts in the field of character development.
This year Children, Inc. will be one of thousands of hosts for a film screening of The Adaptable Mind. Along with the film, discover new discussion materials, an in-depth research hub, and an exciting online, live global conversation around "character" from different perspectives -- science, education, philosophy, and more.
The Adaptable Mind is a ten minute film that asks: what are the skills we need to flourish in the 21st Century?
There will be hors d'oeuvres and beverages provided. Join us to watch the film, then engage in a half hour of discussion.
Learn more about the fantastic partner organizations contributing resources and hosting segments of the global conversation (including the US State Department, NBC's Parent Toolkit, PBS Learning Media, Common Sense Media, and many more).
