#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.

Will kids be OK? With this question in mind, we are focusing a lot of our energy in advocating for children’s rights and children’s participation across the planet.

“A Future for the World’s Children” a 2020 WHO-UNICEF-The Lancet report, calls for the creation of a global movement that would allow both to rethink the SDGs, translate them into effective children’s rights, and simultaneously to rewrite children’s rights in order to fully integrate the current situation (environmental, societal and sanitary crises, rising eco-anxiety, etc.). We delved into this matter, one year on, at the Festival, with the roundtable “Will Kids Be Okay?”. During this session, contributors (experts in child health and well-being and young people themselves), spoke about the links between children’s health and our planet, and how all people can work together to preserve both for future generations.
