Bringing the Power of Words to the World

Literacy may start with words and reading, but that's not where it ends. Over the next few months, as part of Project Literacy, GOOD and Pearson are teaming up to find out what our future would look like if we could put literacy within everyone's reach. We’ll learn how words help our brains make sense of the world—and what that means for millions of people here and abroad who live without written language. We’ll hear about vital new literacies for our digital age and discover surprising solutions for illiteracy from designers, scientists, artists, and other thought leaders. And we’ll find out why literacy so often leads to success—personally, economically, and for society as a whole.
