Sir Ken Robinson provides the closing statement for the Learning Without Frontiers 2012 Conference under the theme "Leading a Learning Revolution". 

Reforms are required for our industrial scale education systems but what forms shall they take, what will they value and what purpose shall they serve? 

In closing, Sir Ken Robinson reflects on what has been heard and discussed with previous speakers and offers a call to action for the delegates to look at the future with a new determination based upon the challenges that future generations face and where our education systems will need to nurture the creative innovators upon which our future well-being will be placed.
