The OECD (2018) emphasises that to navigate an increasingly uncertain and ambiguous world, young people will need to develop curiosity, imagination, resilience, and self-regulation. In developing countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, and Vietnam, efforts to maintain sustainable growth in their respective economies hinges on a progressing and updated system of education that is more transformational (Ilie & Rose, 2016). In this symposium we will present findings to date from ACES - A Community-centred Educational Model for Developing Social Resilience, funded by the UKRI-ESRC under the Global Challenges Research Fund, led by academics at a UK University. Across the four papers the project partners will discuss how ACES has engaged with young people and teachers in experimenting with playful education for facilitating localised creative thinking, problem-solving and frugal learning.
