Current institutional practices do not foster the types of knowledge and learning required for the 21st century.

Many academics and initiatives are already exploring how to adapt research, teaching and engagement practices to make them fit for a future of colliding environmental and social crises. Thousands more are aware of the problems with the status quo, and are looking for something to do about it. Our projects – organised within five central hubs – connect these people, and make it easier to act.

In some of our projects we compile and repurpose existing material so that it is easy to digest. In others, we work with our community to design original events, tools and infrastructure.

We are producing resources for use by academics of all disciplines, locations and levels of seniority. Some actions require only ten minutes, and others more time.

Interested in contributing? We want our work to be as useful as possible. Explore our hub pages to find out how you can feed into resource design, highlight best practice you've come across, and test and refine outputs. Whether you are an academic, academic-related staff, student or non-academic, there are ways for you to get involved.
