LE ROSEY STUDENT ZONE
All students at Le Rosey will be attending the festival, following their own dedicated programme, which will include creative workshops and speaker sessions across campus.
MeeTwo is a multi-award winning app that helps anxious teenagers talk about difficult things and get immediate support. In this talk we will introduce how MeeTwo works and examine the insights into youth mental health that we are discovering by listening to young people and observing how they help each other. We will explore the role that teachers can play to both reduce stress factors and help equip young people with the skills and tools needed to cope with anxiety. This talk is ideally suited to young people who want to learn more about youth mental health and MeeTwo as well as teachers who want to gain a better understanding of how to support their students.
The talk by Rosey student and Little Planet Foundation Founder, Aryaman Darda, features a variety of different ways of looking at how to tackle the current crisis of environment endangerment and wildlife protection. It also considers his own point of view and what he does to work towards conservation and it will look at easy steps that everyone can take to ensure that our world lasts an extra 100 years.
More than ever, it is vital that students are not just informed about the world around them, but that they develop the skills to understand the difference between fact, opinion, bias, information and disinformation. Raphael Minder, the Madrid bureau chief for The New York Times, will talk about how news can be used from a young age to engage students with the changing world around them and connect them to the context in which they live. Raphael will use his personal experience in reporting for The New York Times, to highlight examples that can build literacy skills, engage students in thinking critically about how they consume media, and develop them as empowered citizens in the 21st century.

Floyd will talk about the Compass For Life and how it enables pupils and teachers to understand themselves and practice self-leadership. It can be used by teachers leaders to bring out the real, and often hidden, goals and dreams of their children. Using a map, and the four cardinal points of the compass as a simple framework, CFL allows individuals to connect with their dreams and ambitions. It gives them an authentic purpose for learning that is highly motivational. Learning together and learning better, as part of a team, is the key.
Alvin Carpio currently runs United Citizens, a global movement committed to shaping the fourth industrial revolution for all, leaving nobody behind. Hear him speak with his former teacher, Kim Kovacevic, who once nearly banned him from participating in a mock election at school before giving him a second chance. That mock election gave Alvin his first experience of political campaigning. He has since gone on to campaign on issues of social justice and human rights, and to advise governments and multinational corporations. In 2017 he was listed on Forbes 30 Under 30 for his work in law and policy.
The Addictlab Academy offers a unique educational experience that pushes cross-curricular learning, project based learning and collective intelligence to create a transformational approach to education.
Addictlab’s Mobile Creative Lab will visit EduFest, and offer activities to the students on the campus.
The bus will come packed with a unique blend of activities that connect STEAM, robotics, fab lab and maker space challenges to art, design and personal profiling.
“My ultimate intention is to create art that prompts an emotional response to viewers. A response that arouses the feelings of enchantment, reflection, stillness and awareness.”
EduFest Le Rosey welcomes hyper-realist artist, Kelvin Okafor, to the festival to lead two art workshops for students from Le Rosey. He will introduce them to his style of art, explaining the techniques and working with them on their own individual pieces produced during the workshop. Students will leave with an understanding of tonal values through layering, how to achieve skin texture and understanding proportions through shapes. This promises to be a highly valuable workshop to any Rosey students interested in drawing. More information can be found with Mr D Newbery.
The charity Rubbish Science uses things like discarded plastic bottles to trap mosquitoes or build solar stills or hydroponic plant systems. It is the learning journey that is more important than the end result.

"From as early as I could remember, I have always been a highly sensitive individual. Inspired, touched and captivated by almost everything in my immediate surroundings. Around the age of 8, I vividly remembers having a love and strong fascination for drawing with pencils. I found the instrument to be a humble one and would often use the expression 'aliveness' to describe it's technical and sentimental value. What fascinated me most about pencils was that with single shades of lead, I could create tones and textures so defined and so abstract, an illusion of colour would be formed before me. I became heavily inspired by this notion and spent most of his early years trying to utilise its technical use."
The style in which he creates his portraits is known as Hyper-realism.

Neil has taught some of the most and least compliant students, the highest and lowest achievers and the richest and poorest across four continents. The similarities between these students is
far greater than the differences between them.
Insatiably curious he uses scientific thinking to push most things to breaking point and to see what can be learned. Always trying to get students to embrace failure as a learning experience and to build resilience.
Neil founded the charity Rubbish Science that uses things like discarded plastic bottles to trap mosquitoes or build solar stills or hydroponic plant systems. It is the learning journey that is more important than the end result. We use technology to connect people across the World on a level playing field to see what we can learn from each other. A planned project will have students from a Swiss Boarding school sharing ideas with children who live on a Rubbish dump in Sierra Leone.
