Calling notably upon research, collective problem solving and citizen science, #LearningPlanet inspires and empowers learners to address the most pressing challenges in education. It gives a strong voice to the youth in designing better learning futures and supports exemplary learning communities -teachers, changemakers- to share and scale promising pedagogies.

Supporting and empowering educators

Education stakeholders face many challenges to better teaching. This is particularly true in these times of health crisis. Based on a strong research-based methodology developed at CRI, we propose a collective response for communities of teachers, through sharing and pooling :
-the challenges teachers face;
-the actions teachers are taking to respond to these challenges;
-feedback for the actions teachers put in place;
-summaries of all the feedback by diverse communities of teachers for a given action.

At #LearningPlanet, we believe that It is up to young people to invent the future of learning. Young people are actresses and actors and full-fledged players in our societies. They are the future. They must, therefore, be allowed to express their vision of this future, using their collective imagination to write, in particular, a new story about school, from kindergarten to university. They should be invited to invent new ways of learning, in collaboration with the previous generations and educators, but also independently. Launched by UNESCO and CRI to inspire and empower learners, #LearningPlanet will support youth/learners to collectively contribute to strengthening learning systems for the future.
To do so, #LP is structured around 4 axes:
1. The promotion of exemplary collective problem solving pedagogies (online repository);
2. The celebration of the most meaningful ways of learning to take care of oneself, others and the planet;
3. The development of an open digital campus, with a series of solutions (Open ID Connect with UNICEF ECARO, #LP Projects, WeLearn) designed for learning communities facing major challenges (e.g. in Haiti, Niger, etc.);
4. Youth voice advocacy, with the organisation of global campaigns bringing together student unions and institutions to co-design new learning pathways.
