Join us to organise the LearningPlanet Festival 2023!

The urgent need for new ways of thinking, learning, tooling up, and engaging to transform education is the very reason LearningPlanet was created in 2019 with UNESCO.

Organised each year around the International Day of Education (24 January), the LearningPlanet Festival brings together hundreds of pioneering organisations working in the fields of education, culture, science, social and environmental impact, as well as thousands of engaged students and youth activists from around the world. 

By sharing insights, projects and initiatives already underway, new data and practices, the Festival is instrumental in bridging the gap between learning and the transitions we all strive to deliver. Read more here.

Are you an education pioneer? Gather your community online or locally and take part in the Festival with your event. The Festival welcomes discussions, screenings, forums, workshops, open stages, hackathons and any events that promote collective intelligence and sharing.

Reserve your free Festival ticket now - everyone is invited!


From grassroots players and innovators (NGOs, youth movements, social entrepreneurs…) to universities, cities, and multilateral organisations. The Festival welcomes passionate learners of all ages – youth, teachers, artists, activists, scientists, social entrepreneurs, policymakers and more.

This year, more than ever, we want to highlight a set of priorities related to well-being – particularly that of our young people who are going through a serious mental health crisis worldwide -, to equity and peace, to the protection of the environment and biodiversity: these are all urgent challenges that require in-depth transformation of education systems, the creation of a learning society, and the proposal of new narratives for the future. 

The provisional programme is designed to highlight these issues: it will accommodate a multitude of other themes and initiatives carried by the rapidly growing LearningPlanet community. Discover the thematic grid of the Festival programme.
