Why we need young minds to design our future

Why we need young minds to design our future | Butterflies in my head | Scoop.it
To understand how to adapt to and shape our rapidly changing world, we have to study how children, not adults, respond to it, says a top designer.
アーサー's insight:

"The uncontaminated, enthusiastic process of understanding the world is so important, and Seymour says it has given him many ideas for creating new products. Since the beginnings of humanity we’ve understood that young people think and put together things in a certain way. The difference now is that it is absolutely critical to study the emergent behaviour in the young, because of the rate of change of the world around us. Studying the young to understand how this world is changing and how we need to form the world around it isn’t optional, it’s mission critical."
