OUR MISSION


THE UNSCHOOL MISSION

To activate and seed creative leadership for positive, impactful social and environmental change globally


WE ARE PIONEERS OF CHANGE

WE CAN'T SOLVE PROBLEMS WITH THE SAME THINKING THAT CREATED THEM 

We need as many humans as possible to activate their agency, and participate in addressing the complex messy problems that we see in our beautiful shared home planet of Earth. 

Watch this video to hear the origin story of The UnSchool!

Everyone who comes to the UnSchool has a shared desire to contribute to the type of future that works better for all of us.  They are pioneers, creatives, thinkers, doers, activators. They are the people who don’t just sit back and accept the status quo, they are forging the pathways that challenge and change it.

If this is you, or the future you, then you should start right now, and join our mission

THERE ARE NO PASSENGERS ON SPACESHIP EARTH. WE ARE ALL SHARED PILOTS AND THE UNSCHOOL IS SUPERHERO TRAINING FOR CREATIVE CHANGEMAKers.

WE'RE ON A MISSION!

WE HAVE OVER 200 ALUMNI FROM 37 COUNTRIES. COMMITTED, TALENTED, PASSIONATE, CREATIVE REBELS, WHO ACTIVELY PARTICIPATE IN CREATING POSITIVE CHANGE IN THE WORLD AROUND THEM. 

Our community is driven by a value and agenda social enterprise model that seeks to inspire, provoke and activate positive social change through creative interventions and unique educational experiences.

We activate creative leadership for social and environmental change by developing programs for emerging leaders, established professionals and our wider creative community that pops up around the world.

The UnSchool of Disruptive Design is committed to being a positive social force, activating self-selecting change agents around the world to address complex social and environmental problems creatively. We are all about positively disrupting the status quo for outcomes that generate new and creative solutions to age-old problems

POST-DISPOSABLE

We are strongly committed to go beyond just minimizing our environmental impact. Our general operating guidelines include post-disposable initiatives, plant-centric local food, actively seeking and creating new and unique ways to produce content in sustainable ways. We will be the first to admit we can't get it all right all the time, but everything we do is about expanding and normalising sustainability. 

EQUITABLE ACCESS

While each program we run varies in cost, we aim to make each as affordable and equitable as possible, while still being able to build our capacity and reach with integrity. As a social enterprise, we work hard to grow opportunities for access and participation while advancing our core agenda of creating innovative models for knowledge transfer and social activation. To date, we have given away over $87K in equity access scholarships.  

Global Change 

We are committed to finding unique ways of transferring and activating global creative change, to help companies, governments and individuals uncover the tools needed to redesign at the systems level for sustainable and regenerative solutions.  

“Integrity is the essence of everything successful.”
