What is the Learning Planet Institute?

The Learning Planet Institute is the new iteration of the Center for Research and Interdisciplinarity, or CRI, started by researchers François Taddei and Ariel Lindner in 2006. As suggested by its name, the Learning Planet Institute is a driver of the learning-society revolution that believes learning, research, collective intelligence, and creativity can help both people and organizations adapt to the increasingly complex challenges of our rapidly changing world.

We are a research-and-development center as well as a graduate and post-graduate school developing programs for kindergarteners and doctoral students alike and every age in between—and even for continuing-education learners. We likewise offer services to government agencies, companies, and other types of organizations as they embark on their learning-society transformation. Our unique position as a digital-innovation hub tapped into a global community of change-makers lets us explore and share knowledge in new ways at an unprecedented scale, all for the purpose of facing head on the great social and environmental challenges of our time.

Thanks to long-standing partners the Bettencourt Schueller Foundation, University Paris Cité, CY Cergy Paris University, the French General Secretariat for Investment, the City of Paris, Inserm (the French Institute of Health and Medical Research), and UNESCO, the Learning Planet Institute can continue in the CRI’s legacy as an agent of change where research and entrepreneurship come together to have a real impact in making the world a better place for live.

Colloque "l’enseignement des transitions écologique et sociétale à l'Université"
Présentation du séminaire :

Les enjeux de transition écologique et sociale sont naturellement au cœur des préoccupations des jeunes générations.Il est indispensable de sensibiliser et de former les étudiants à ces problématiques, et ce, le plus tôt possible afin qu’ils puissent devenir des acteurs conscients, positifs et éclairés, à même de relever les défis locaux et globaux qu’ils auront à affronter. Cette conviction est soutenue par la publication récente du rapport du groupe de travail présidé par Jean Jouzel remis il y a quelques semaines au MESRI, de la proposition de la commission européenne sur l’éducation aux enjeux de durabilité, et des fortes attentes du monde universitaire, en particulier des étudiants à ce sujet, comme l’attestent le manifeste Pour un Réveil Écologique, et la consultation nationale du Réseau Étudiant pour une Société Écologique et Solidaire (RESES). De nombreux acteurs de l’enseignement supérieur portent des initiatives permettant de contribuer à la formation aux enjeux de durabilité et qui mériteraient de passer à l’échelle pour impacter un nombre plus important d’apprenants.es. D’autant plus que ces projets peuvent être source d’inspiration pour d’autres acteurs qui souhaiteraient mettre en œuvre des formations similaires. L'Université Paris Cité et le Learning Planet Institute, à travers l’Institut des défis, souhaitent organiser un événement dédié aux acteurs de l’enseignement des transitions dans le supérieur ayant pour but la découverte d’initiatives de nouvelles formation inspirantes, le partage de pratiques et la conception d’une boîte à outils de mise en place de formations dans l’enseignement supérieur. Notre volonté est de contribuer à l’essaimage de ce qui fonctionne, aider celles et ceux qui explorent différentes manières de former les apprenants à appréhender les enjeux de durabilité et à collaborer pour apporter des pistes de solution.

Les objectifs du séminaire : Découverte de formats et outils pédagogiques pour la formation aux enjeux de transition Mise en réseau d’acteurs engagés dans l’enseignement des transitions Discuter des freins et leviers à la mise en oeuvre de ces formations Conception d’une boîte à outils pour la mise en place de nouvelles formations Déroulé provisoire : Jour 1 - Mercredi 6 Juillet Série de présentations d'initiatives portées par différents acteurs et temps d'échanges Table-ronde sur la thématique “Quelles stratégies d’organisations pour enseigner massivement les transitions écologiques dans l’enseignement supérieur ?''' Jour 2 - Jeudi 7 Juillet

Ateliers 1 : La fresque de la maquette blanche

Quelles compétences pour une progression d'apprentissage ? Quelles modalités pédagogiques et quels contenus par niveau ?

Atelier 2 : Comment adapter les maquettes existantes ?

Transposer les réflexions de l'atelier 1 pour faire évoluer les maquettes existantes ou créer de nouveaux parcours ? Echanges autour de la question : "Construire un réseau universitaire pour l’enseignement des transitions dans l’enseignement supérieur ?" Jour 3 (optionnel) - Vendredi 8 Juillet

Expérience “terrain” en suivant certaines séquences de l’école d’été du LPI

A qui s'adresse ce séminaire ? :

Tous les acteurs de l'enseignement supérieur qui souaitent collaborativement réfléchir aux différentes manières d'enseigner les enjeux de transition écologique et sociétaux à l'Université. La présence d'étudiants à ce séminaire serait un vrai atout.

Crypto Carbon Ecosystem - Paris

Join us for a collaborative workshop on bridging the value-action gap, reimagining value exchange systems, rewiring valueflows using web3 About this event

How decentralized solutions contribute to clean energy transition and help each of us become an active participant of this needed transformation?

REGISTER HERE Who is it for?

Are you a web3 participant who wants to learn more about crypto carbon ecosystem, regenerative finance, incentives - specifically for distributed solar power and energy efficient use of it?

Are you a decentralized solar power enthusiast who wants to reimagine voluntary carbon markets, using programmable markets and incentive design mechanisms, participatory networks, and self-sovereignty?

What can you expect?

We will share the insights from the Lisbon event, and timely articles, and scnearios a week before. In a collaborative setting our aim is to enable common understanding of how web3 can be a game changer.

Impulses: (tbd) Sustainability to SDGs, Impact Investment to Regenerative Finance: what moved? ReFi and web3 Ecosystem: techno-economic socio-institutional paradigm shifts?

Prefiguration: (tbd) We need reimaginations! Hence before we start the workshop in the afternoon, we invite you onto a solarpunk microLARP through the city around ethcc. You will be well prepared, and experience the power of imagination, web3 tokenization, augmented reality, and social movement.

As part of this microLARP you will experience the "Values of Sun" art research in augmented/reality; participate and interact.
