1,3 billion learners and educators across the world, of which 200 millions students in higher education alone!
Many pioneers around the world developing incredible SDG-based pedagogies & projects.
In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 goals for a better world by 2030.
In partnership with UNESCO, we are launching a global Festival held on January, 24th to celebrate International Day of Education, a date proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in 2018 to honour education and its centrality to human well-being and sustainable development.
The Learning Planet Festival will consist in:
On January 2020, the official launch of the Festival will take place at UNESCO headquarters. In coming years, official events will be organized simultaneously with selected partners in different countries. Bringing together eminent public figures, such events will showcase some of the most inspiring ESD solutions & will be widely relayed online & in leading media.
...to reach exponential growth and impact, bringing together existing events as well as everyone willing to initiate locally their own Learning Planet festivals & get involved in the promotion of learning for SDGs.
...with resources & toolkits to facilitate local initiatives and help the festival to spread globally.
To maximize impact by partnering with the most visible global events, thus spreading a culture of hope and collaboration around the SDG, we are proposing to organize a coopetition in the spirit of the Olympic Games that will allow to recognize and scale the best ESD solutions from around the world.
The Learning Planet Sustainable Development Games will consist in:
Each year, the SD Games will be hosted by a partner event such as the Olympic Games or the World Expo and will offer a unique opportunity to award Laureates from all countries as well as exemplary learning communities.
Different Prize categories will be designed to recognize a range of achievements in the field of education for sustainable development (best scientific advance for SDGs, best frugal innovation, students awards, etc.)
The Laureates will benefit of tailored mentoring and support designed to help them further improve their impact and disseminate key lessons to be adapted in other locations.
To connect and empower all key-players, educators & learners involved in SDG-based pedagogies, we are developing an open-source collaborative ecosystem which enables frictionless sharing, remixing & creation of ESD content & solutions.
The Learning Planet Online Platform will consist in:
Designed to become a focal point addressing SDG pedagogies & innovation in learning, this unique global campus will map relevant information (curated resources, programs, initiatives…) and facilitate its appropriation / adaptation. Tailor-made content will also be regularly proposed, notably through #Learning Planet MOOCs.
Partnerships between tier-one online players will allow for the dissemination of the very best tools to improve collaboration between existing learning communities and for the creation of new solutions to help address future challenges. Such solutions are currently being developed, such as #LP Projects & WeLearn.
To connect a worldwide network of local learning communities that foster SDG-based projects & help empower educators and learners, we are keeping on animate the LP & partners learning communities across the world through projects, workshops & online activities.
The Learning Planet Local Projects will consist in:
Bringing together a network of local/regional learning communities, Learning Planet will help coordinate their efforts in both the design of global solutions & their local implementation.
Partnerships will allow learning communities to join forces, meet and collaborate, learn from successful initiatives and further reflect on the implementation of SDG pedagogies in their territories For instance, such a collaboration between Haiti and France is currently being envisaged with the support of AFD.
The diversity of the CRI's past and present members is the foundation of its richness, creativity and energy. All of these interdisciplinary personalities offer an exceptional potential for networking in view of their multiple trajectories. An advisory board, made up of some fifty alumni, students and fellows, has been set up in order to co-construct the facilitation strategy together. One of the first achievements was the creation of a digital platform dedicated to them, in order to structure themselves internally and strengthen their exchanges, particularly with current students.
The Bettencourt-Schueller Foundation has been a strategic long term partner since CRI was created. CRI is accompanied by a wide range of partners as City of Paris and INSERM. It is also supported by grants from Axa Foundation, European Union, “les programmes d’investissements d’Avenir”, Agence National de la Recherche, MSD Avenir.
Our students are encouraged to broaden their horizons by taking part in student life and activities through student clubs. These meetings foster ideas, projects, and common causes. The creativity and commitment that the cubs foster is one of the school's strong points. To encourage ideas and to give them life, the CRI has set up a policy to foster club development. The goal is to advance student initiative and commitment.
Our clubs are open to the public, even non-students. Some clubs are associations which are housed at the CRI and include some students. The clubs have a special access to resource logistics, equipment, finance and manpower.
Via club membership students are invested/committed to subjects that they're passionate about and develop extra-curricular skills via a natural learning process. They prepare budgets, organise events, work in groups and speak in public. Their role/responsibilities and skills translate academically throughout their studies.
Clubs play another key role: community management. Clubs organize events bringing together students and staff. Clubs also provide an arena to foster meeting points for different programmes where students can meet, exchange and build together. They foster the programme's cross-pollination/borders/ programme networking.
