"Students should have access to food and beverages throughout the school day."

"Most institutions do not teach

what should be the centrepiece of a 

contemporary education: entrepreneurship."

 

"Stuck doing boring, repetitive tasks and regurgitating information that they are forced to memorise, it's no wonder that many otherwise brilliant minds are put in

a straitjacket in school."

"Just 5 minutes of green exercise can produce rapid improvements in mental well-being and self-esteem,

with the greatest benefits experienced by the young."

"The World where high school graduates

could expect employment in decent-paying factory jobs does not exist anymore.

The imperative to retool schools

has never been greater."

 

"Real and lasting change often begins with small-scale innovations that can operate within the bounds of education as we know it."

Learning in the 22nd Century

Founded in 1999, a 100-year plan (phase 1) to transition to learning for the future in a global learning community, was started.

 

A 30-year plan (phases 2 and 3) is already mapped out. Both of these phases are 15-year cycles (2022-2035 and 2036 -2051).

 

You are invited to be a leader at the forefront of Learning in the 22nd century

 

In January 2021 independent schools across the globe will be invited to engage with and become part of a connected global learning programme. This is founded on shaping new horizons for creative learners, establishing different learning spaces from where inspired and engaged learners will emerge, and connecting to likeminded others. 

 

For those who recognise the need to ‘flex’ their existing model to become education leaders of tomorrow, they will benefit from commercial incomes never previously associated with education, whilst providing learning opportunities most suited to their learners.  

 

Hospitality, Tourism and Education: What are the links? 

 

These new centres of learning will both compliment and supplement traditional systems.

The local and global connectivity between the centres, based on common purposes and vision, will build stability and continuity for the new era of learning that restricts no-one and includes everyone. Such centres will prosper and bring rewards for all stakeholders. 

 

The first 21 years of the plan has focussed on the changes that were needed in the hospitality industry. Our vision is to create Sustainable Life Centres that will enhance learning experiences for children, students, lifelong learners and their families. The centres will enable them to engage with local cultures and communities, understanding and connecting with real life issues. 

 

One plan is to locate a centre within a hotel complex to enable tourists and locals to learn together so that the centres are embedded in the culture and values of the region. The first of these Sustainable Life Centres has already been created and is poised to be replicated across 70 countries in the next 7 years, working with the largest hotel and hospitality brand in the world. Another option is to create a facility in your school grounds, that will serve as a hub for your community which can be connected to hubs nationally and internationally.

 

The curriculum of these centres will reflect the interests and needs of the learners, facilitated by expert staff – expert in their knowledge and expert in encouraging and guiding learning. The curriculum will reflect the UN’s 17 sustainable development goals and key areas of lifelong learning, addressing the present and future needs both the individual and of society.

Our School is a leader in the educational world of tomorrow.

 

Your school can apply to become an important founding partner of Sustainable Life Centres and you are invited to become one of its leaders. Pioneering change, you will become a leader in the transition towards a ‘fit for purpose’, customer-driven, future-oriented community and society. 

 

Sustainable Life Centres will become a global brand, positioned both outside and alongside the traditional education system. 

The global ‘brand’ will establish itself locally, regionally and nationally through partnership with existing traditional schools. These new centres will both compliment and supplement existing school practices.

 

The centre’s curricula, new creative foundations, new teaching methods and new policies will be established with you. It will attract a range of stakeholders: parents, pupils, commercial enterprise, sponsorship and funding/investment.

The journey to become a centre is both and creative, enabling you to become the educator you wish to be.

 

Sustainable, enjoyable, prosperous and valued by all who dare to participate… are you up for the challenge and want to know more?
