About the workshop:

For the 8th edition of this collective conversation, we are super excited to host Colleen Mascenik - President & Executive Director at the BreakAway Learning Project. She will be talking about her experience on how she has curated homeschooling & personalised learning plans for 4 of her children over the years and how each teen designs his or her own pathway, and how it was on this basis that she developed the platform https://breakawaylearning.org

The BreakAway Learning project is working with learning clusters in Phnom Penh, Nairobi, Kabul, Kyiv, and Colorado. The goal is to inspire and support an “underground” of young people (e.g. ages 12-19) to leave school and pursue intensively what interests them most. At the same time , it aims to support the development of fee-based community-level learning clusters (think Airbnb of like-interested people) and the discovery of mentors through chat. She would be discussing the business dilemmas in building markets around latent demand, and the differences of parent versus teen seeing oneself as the consumer.

About Futures of Learning

UNESCO New Delhi​ together with ​Maker’s Asylum​ would like to extend a warm invitation to you to be part of this collective conversation that aims to bring together alternative learning spaces and communities that exist in forms of residencies, innovation hubs, art collectives, galleries, incubators and more & essentially talk about the learnings that they provide, especially when it comes to collective intelligence and collaborative approach to problem solving. We have hosted various themes of this conversation so far in Paris, Copenhagen, Mumbai, New Delhi and Bangalore.

The event is open and free for all and will be followed by chai at our rooftop! :)
