“I’m excited to share with you this mini podcast series. I’ve been talking to political leaders and world experts across three continents to start a debate about the entire history of human learning – and where humanity should go next.

This special series on Sarah Brown’s Better Angels podcast follows my travels from the Beqaa Valley to Silicon Valley to find out why the way we learn is failing to adapt to a rapidly changing world. I ask some of the most extraordinary and inspirational people I know – from prime ministers to tech CEOs to a classroom of 12-year olds – how did learning shape their stories and how should we change our education systems so everyone is prepared to reach their potential?”
– Tom Fletcher

If you want to explore the ideas in this podcast further, you can also download our first report, ‘The World Needs Global Learning Goals’, where we outline the exciting conversation happening in learning, the challenges we face, and how the Towards Global Learning Goals initiative plans to work on it.

Our second report, ‘Kindling the Flame’, claims most people are learning the wrong things in the wrong way, proposes Global Learning Goals for all learners, and sets out the challenges we face to make them happen.

Our third report, ‘From Ferment to Fusion’, looks further at the challenges we set out in ‘Kindling the Flame’. We reflect on innovation and change, and we identify for each challenge a practical, coalition building, action.

Our fourth report, ‘Our Tech Manifesto’, sets out a manifesto for how tech can help genuinely collaborative problem solving rather than just disruption, and Tom Fletcher writes an open letter to tech leaders asking for their help in stirring a ‘learning reawakening’.

Our fifth report, ‘Universities of the Future’, asks existential questions about the future of higher education, and starts to propose some answers.

We promise we won't spam you.
