This was the driving motivation behind ShapingEDU Winter Games, which brought together more than 1,200 changemakers — education leaders, smart city experts, students, faculty and technologists — from January 5-7, 2021 to drive forward the conversations, plans and actionable ways for individuals and communities to shape the future of living and learning.

"It's really all about how we come together as a community to address ongoing challenges and barriers and see past it, to use our heartfelt principles of inclusion and access and equity and design that better world together,” said Samantha Becker, Winter Games Olympic Trainer and Executive Director, Creative and Communications for ASU’s University Technology Office (pictured above).
