Our vision

The LearningPlanet Festival 2023 calls on all education pioneers and all Learning Planetizens to join us!

That new ways of thinking, learning, tooling up, co-existing and engaging are urgently needed is the very reason the LearningPlanet Alliance exists, as well as the motive that unites us and the focus of all our work. The LearningPlanet Festival is the annual gathering of the Alliance and has become the global event to showcase transformation efforts, join forces to create and build on ideas, share data and learnings, and to celebrate and power up our ambitions.

The 2023 Learning Planet Festival is the meeting place for all supporting and driving the transformation needed to enable us to take better care of ourselves, each other and our planet through this year’s core themes of equity, the environment and well-being.

Central to this transformation’s success are our younger generations and our youth. 

That over 30% of the world’s population, approximately 2.6 billion youth, have no agency or way to affect what is happening around them is not something that we consider optimal for humanity’s future.  

The LearningPlanet Alliance believes we must not restrict either the transforming actors, nor limit our ambitions! We welcome anyone that wants to join us in this ambition as a ‘Learning Planetizen’. 

Learning Planetizens share our conviction that learning and education enable us to turn knowledge, data and ideas into action, work together to learn to overcome personal, local, and global challenges, and are defined by persistent common efforts to transform education systems, to create an inclusive learning society, and to explore new learning narratives and environments for the 21st Century.

We welcome all planetizens to join us in equipping ourselves with the learnings and education needed to protect and nourish us as individuals, as active members of society, and as inhabitants of our planet. 

If you were born on this planet you are already a Planetizen, 

If you were not born on this planet, but you share our mission and values, we welcome you as a Planetizen,

Planetizens unite in learning to take better care of ourselves, each other and our planet.
