#LearningPlanet is structured around 4 key priorities, each of which promotes a series of innovative and collaborative programmes.
#LearningPlanet facilitates the dissemination of educational methods and resources that enable learners to tackle local or even global issues by developing skills such as critical thinking, collaboration, collective intelligence, creativity, learning by doing, social and emotional intelligence, reflexivity, systemic approaches, change management, frugal innovation, etc.
Celebrating learning allows us to explore new ways of accessing knowledge, to nurture inspiration and to cultivate sharing, commitment and passion. Cities, associations and school networks around the world organise events to celebrate lifelong learning. Inspired by these celebrations, #LearningPlanet wishes to amplify these initiatives, spreading the spirit of celebration and importance of coming together. Since 2020, on the week of January 24, the International Day of Education, we synchronise the world around the celebration of formal and informal ways of learning to take care of oneself, others and the planet.
On the 24-25 of January 2021, there were several novelties:
#LearningPlanet seeks to create spaces for our community to share their ideas for facilitating transitions across education, in order to tackle the diverse challenges of our time.
We are exploring:
Transitions in K-12: Hearing from educators from around the world who have founded collaborative initiatives that are delivering change both in their classroom and in their wider communities. See more
Transitions in Higher Education: Charting possible avenues for collaboration between higher education institutions, to collectively shape a vision of higher education for the 21st century.

Today, 40.75% of the world’s population is under 25 years old; the future of the planet and humanity lies in their hands. Investing in youth rights, health, and education is key to achieving an inclusive, equitable and sustainable world for present and future generations, as well as fulfilling the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). #LearningPlanet’s goal is to ensure that youth are involved in all decisions concerning their education and their future.
