More From Thinking Collaborative



Dr. Art Costa received a Basque Beret at the International Conference On Thinking in Bilbao this past July.  It was explained that the Basques do not award prizes or trophies to their winners or people they want to honor for great achievements.  Instead, they award the berets which are called “Txapelas” (pronounced “chapelas”), and the people to whom they are awarded are called “Txapellunis”, which means “champions”.  Congratulations Art!  You are most deserving of this award.
