WHAT IS the #LEARNINGPLANET alliance?
Created in 2020 by the Learning Planet Institute and UNESCO, we are an established and growing community of diverse game changers and institutions transforming education around the world.
Our Alliance unites all change actors, from grassroots players and innovators (universities, NGOs, youth movements, social entrepreneurs…) to cities, national governments and multilateral organisations. Together we co-create new ways of learning, teaching, and researching by sharing our data, practices, knowledge and experience.
Future exploration focused
To embrace change and complexity in exploring new ways of learning, teaching, doing interdisciplinary research, mobilising collective intelligence and seeking to learn from our mistakes.
To create and scale game-changing practices to bring tangible shifts and create a culture of hope.
To make youth engagement and agency integral in all our actions and initiatives.
To build for the long-term by being informed by research, science and traditional wisdom, and inspired by nature and the humanities.
To foster cooperation, listening and feedback between members and value collective impact over competition
Equity & Diversity enabled
To enable all members by giving an equal space and place and dialling-up those that are unheard or under-represented
To communicate in ways that enable everyone to easily join the conversation and favour tools and platforms that our members are already using.
