Our Story

In March 2019, four friends and colleagues working in the third sector posed a question...


“Could we create a meaningful learning experience that would help the next generation to change our world for the better?”


We believe that in order to truly change the world we must all take the long view, educate ourselves now in order to do the most good later. We must fully understand the richness of our cultural diversity and the challenges we as global citizens face, not just in theory but in practice
