In a complex, knowledge-driven world, our ability to learn new things in new ways – to know more than what is known – is key to our ability to survive, sustain, and thrive. In the face of growing challenges, no organization, no industry, no government can do so alone.

Based in Geneva, Switzerland, the nineteenth century birthplace of the first humanitarian conventions, the Geneva Learning Foundation (La Fondation Apprendre Genève) has the mission to connect learning leaders to research, invent, and trial breakthrough approaches for new learning, talent and leadership as a way of shaping humanity and society for the better.
