Learning to take care of oneself, others and the planet

Synchronizing the world around the celebration of learning.

The #LearningPlanet Festival promotes a bottom-up approach: on International Day of Education, everyone, everywhere is invited to reflect on the most significant learnings to their lives and to share what they want to learn next.

The #LP Festival encourages the celebration of learning by individuals and families, by schools and universities, by NGOs and companies, by cities and territories, etc.

Online toolkits on how to organise a Festival (talks, workshops, etc.) will be co-designed by participants and proposed to learning communities.

The Festival also features a “#WhatIf?” online campaign to spread a culture of hope and empowerment.

By showcasing effective ways to take care of oneself, others and the planet, the annual #LearningPlanet Festival invites people around the world to meet, join forces and launch meaningful projects for their communities.
