Tomorrow's Problems

In a rapidly changing work environment where jobs are being taken over by robots and algorithms, equipping the workforce with 21st century skills is essential. The skills needed to make the Indian workforce future-proof and ready for the 21st century knowledge economy range from the social to the intellectual, from coming up with creative solutions using robotics, software engineering and product development, to working and collaborating on solving complex problems as teams. India needs a new generation of thinkers and tinkerers, who can solve problems of tomorrow with sensitivity and imagination. To this end, AMMACHI Labs and the CWEGE have initiated the 2nd Foundation series of 21st century skills workshops targeting school children and young adults, particularly from villages and vulnerable sections of society. We count the Andhra Pradesh government, Amrita SeRVe (Self Reliant Villages) and the Amrita Vidyalayam school network among our partners to help us integrate these unique approaches into school curricula.
