Inspire and Empower Learners to Contribute

Why build a Learning Planet?

The #LEARNINGPLANET celebrates learning and its unique power to change societies for the better.

The world is facing an unprecedented convergence of crises—environmental, economic and social. Needs are massive, urgent and universal. They are calling for a collective and dynamic response to empower everyone to contribute to meeting these challenges.

Learning is at the heart of all the transitions that are needed and everyone can play a role.

The seeds of change already exist with thousands of initiatives and innovative solutions flourishing around the world. From schools to universities, online platforms to learning cities, myriads of learning communities are paving the way at different scales.

LearningPlanet will inspire and empower learners to contribute by showcasing pioneering programs and social experiments and help amplify their impact. LearningPlanet will facilitate learning, action and leadership at a massive scale to address our most urgent and pressing challenges. A #LearningPlanet to dream bigger and achieve better together!

We all have a stake in education, let’s act together to fulfill its promise. — Audrey Azoulay, UNESCO Director General.

Let’s empower learners of the world to invent a sustainable future. — François Taddei, CRI Chief Exploration Officer
