Our convictions

We are convinced that youth, lifelong learning and collective intelligence are our best levers for change in our societies.

The Institute’s mission is to explore, research and share new ways of learning and cooperating in order to respond to the needs of the youth and the planet. By encouraging and disseminating a culture, methods and tools for empowerment, it transforms organisations. Ultimately, it leads communities and supports “Learning Planetizens” to take care of themselves, the others and the planet. 

Based on interdisciplinarity, diversity and initiative, we develop:

  • Research programmes focusing on learning and collective intelligence
  • Teaching programmes to encourage and disseminate a culture, methods and tools
  • An international community of reference for those involved in educational transformation

"Education sciences, startups, learning sciences... it immediately appealed to me! And I don't regret it, I really feel at home here, it's a cosy nest with an intellectual community of excellence (...) At the Learning Planet Institute, there is no reason to fail. All we do is explore and learn."
