Learning for sustainable futures

Inspiring and empowering a global movement of critical learners
who actively contribute to a future beyond capitalism,
patriarchy and white supremacy.

Our vision

Our vision is to inspire and empower a global movement of critical learners who actively contribute to a future beyond capitalism, patriarchy and white supremacy.

What we do

We apply our learning design skills and experience to the converging social and environmental crises (the “metacrisis”).

We help social and environmental change organisations create impact that is more sustainable and radical by embedding learning-centric, hopeful approaches. We help organisations understand the role of learning in facilitating the change they want to see in the world, and implement strategies rooted in learning science and post-capitalist perspectives.

We deliver our own learning experiences to help humans and organisations that sense something isn’t right with the modern world to build a deeper understanding and take action towards radically better ways of being on this planet.

What have you sensed that indicates our current ways of living are not fair, healthy, or sustainable?

The context we’re working in

Deep down, most of us can sense that we’re living in an unsustainable mess, yet we often find ourselves unsure of how to confront this reality. Instead, we tend to ignore it and carry on with our daily routines of production, consumption, and individualism.

Life on this wonderful planet is overshadowed by capitalist systems that thrive on extraction and exploitation. It has become increasingly evident that these systems have never been, and never will be, sustainable – a truth long understood by marginalised communities across the globe.

We believe our era of “more” must come to an end, as the true cost of endless growth and consumption is becoming increasingly difficult to deny.

We believe it is time to unlearn and learn again, to seek out new stories, to embrace hope and imagination, and take action towards radically better ways of being on this planet.

Our journey

LearnJam started a new journey in 2023, with a renewed commitment to using our learning design skills for positive change. We want to resist the current dominant systems and wriggle out of being part of the problem.

We are unlearning and learning all the time, embracing and sharing new stories that bring joy now, as well as bringing hope and inspiring action for a sustainable, liberated future.

We want to acknowledge some of the many thinkers, writers and doers who have influenced us on this journey: Bayo Akomolafe, Adrienne Maree Brown, Dan Burgess (and Becoming Crew), Zahra Davidson (and Huddlecraft), Helene Gerin and Frederic Laloux (and The Week), Dougald Hine, Mikaela Loach, Vanessa Machado de Oliveira, Kate Raworth, Lucy Williams (and The Slow Work Garden). We are grateful for and appreciate all of your offerings.
