Creating the school of the future

A silent revolution has started that could see schools change forever.

By creating learning environments that go beyond the limits of traditional schooling systems, children are being encouraged to explore through play and collaboration, and are experiencing new levels of joy that sparks a life-long love of learning and development.

The results are exciting, with a new generation that feels inspired to create a bright new future for themselves, as well as for wider society.  

Join us at TEDxLausanne 2019 where Cristina Riesen will challenge you to open your hearts and minds to a revolution in education.
