    How can higher education contribute to tackling today’s complex challenges?

    In this wide-ranging book, Anke Schwittay argues that, in order to inspire and equip students to generate better responses to global challenges, we need a pedagogy that develops their imagination, creativity, emotional sensibilities and practical capabilities.

    Schwittay proposes a critical-creative pedagogy that incorporates design-based activities, experiential teaching, serious play and future-oriented practices. Crucially, she demonstrates the importance of moving beyond analysing limitations to working towards alternatives for more equitable, just and sustainable futures.

    Presenting concrete ideas for the re-imagination of higher education, this book is an essential read for both educators and students in any field studying global challenges.

    Anke Schwittay is Senior Lecturer in Anthropology and Global Development at the University of Sussex.
