System level change occurs when thinking changes. We are still living the legacy of the industrial revolution, thinking of the economy as a mechanism that can be controlled ‘top down’.

We aim to support the important work of teachers in classrooms around the world through the interplay of the six pillars of our Schools & Colleges Programme.

The education programmes born of and designed for the era of the industrial revolution are reductionist and based on a batch production model that sees the world as ‘machine like’. The way we educate the next generation will define how they see the world, work within it and shape it. In order to change the way our institutions work we need to change the way we think about the world, and the way we teach the next generation to think about it.

Teachers in schools and colleges globally are in the best position to shift the mindsets of the next generation who will lead the transition to and participate in a circular economy.
