LearningPlanet is an open alliance of educational stakeholders and learning communities with a cause. Our mission is to inspire & empower learners of all ages to contribute to shaping better futures. New ways of learning, teaching, researching and mobilizing collective intelligence are needed to do so, as demonstrated by current global crises. Building on its international community of pioneers, #LearningPlanet aims to identify, develop and amplify the most effective ways to collectively solve the world’s most pressing and complex challenges, such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
LearningPlanet develops its strategic activities around 4 complementary axes:
GLOBAL COMMUNITY OF PIONEERS
We catalyse a community of pioneering actors in the art of helping learners to collectively address complex challenges, locally & globally.
We amplify the voice of learners around the world so that they can be involved in all decisions concerning their learning and their future.
CELEBRATION OF LEARNING
By celebrating learning, both formal and informal, the #LP Festival ensures learners of any age flourish and take better care of themselves, others and the planet.
LP OPEN CAMPUS
We create a set of digital tools to serve learning communities and help educators and learners navigate the frontiers of todays’ knowledge.

We weren't there to hear what the two discussed, but maybe you can imagine their conversation… Participants under 25 years old are invited to share their contributions until 30 November 2020 in the writing contest hosted by #LearningPlanet in partnership with Foundation Antoine de Saint Exupéry, Labo des histoires and UNESCO.

Organised annually around January 24 -the International Day of Education- in partnership with UNESCO and a range of exemplary partners, the #LearningPlanet Festival aims at celebrating formal and informal learning in a distributed way, both online and through events organised in various locations.
The programme of the 2021 edition is currently being designed with our partners. A first series of toolkits is already available for schools, universities, third-places, cities and any other organisation willing to host their own local and/or online Festival and looking for ideas of possible activities. Everyone can contribute to this truly bottom-up and joyful initiative.
