Launching our first Global Academy: Legacy Learning @TheJetty
Legacy Learning is one of the most ambitious global projects to revolutionise learning that has ever existed and is part of our commitment to Three Global Goals of Educational Reform, Empowerment for All and Environmental Rejuvenation. Involving 65 Global Change Ambassadors who include the First Lady of Japan and the Minister of Happiness in Dubai, the project has already connected over 120 organisations around the world with a passion to create and deliver alternative learning content that will educate, inspire and capture imagination.
To do this we are proud to launch Legacy Learning @TheJetty, our first Global Academy. The Academy provides an exciting, sustainable venue space for learning, workshops, events and sharing of best practice and is completely aligned with our purpose, values and ambitions for becoming the go to hub for inspiration and change.
We have created a series of experiences throughout the year that will provide opportunities for the local community to connect with our global network and work together towards becoming more empowered and aware global citizens passionate about going beyond sustainability and learning across three generations.
Legacy Learning @TheJetty offers experiences that are exciting, immersive, inclusive and where ever possible subsidized or free to those in the community that are most at need.
It is our intention to have Legacy Learning Academies in London, Los Angeles, Dubai and Tokyo with a view to develop a global learning community where best practice and innovations can be developed and shared.
To support the academy and ensure we are completely inclusive, Legacy Learning is also an online platform free for any user anywhere in the world with digital interactive content aligned with our vision for passion based learning and developed in partnership with Fusion Universal.

What we teach and the way it is taught determines how a society thinks, behaves and evolves. Our current and future generations require a new vision and education system which will enable our planet and all its inhabitants to rejuvenate and thrive. We have embarked on an exciting journey to create this world through Legacy Learning. The largest ever open source, online and face2face global network of content, contributors and teachers committed to creating solution driven mindsets and innovative and inclusive vehicles for change. Legacy Learning has three global goals, educational reform, environmental rejuvenation and empowering everyone. Through our Legacy Learning solutions we are developing cross cultural and intergenerational learning ecosystems which are inspiring curiosity and creativity as well as deeper connectivity with ourselves, others and nature. We bring together and nurture passionate individuals and organisations who believe we can teach and learn differently at the same time as changing the world.
‘To Teach is To Learn Twice’ – Joseph Joubert
We believe that many of the challenges we face in the world are created because of how and what we teach and learn. The beliefs, values and social principles we are taught create specific mindsets which guide our actions. We know that if we can create a new way of teaching that inspires individuals to think for themselves, be curious and tap into their passions, we can create solution driven mindsets with limitless possibility.
The world has changed and in general, our current education system, professional development and individual learning isn’t providing the inspiration, skills and content we need to change with it. We are advancing technology at an exponential rate and our learning systems that enable us to unlock human potential need to reflect this.
We know that this is a global challenge and that it requires creating an inclusive community of collaboration and creative contribution. A community of unique individuals inspired to follow their passions and share the journey with other global citizens. This in itself will produce measurable, sustainable change.
We also know that there are many organisations out there seeking to change education and provide alternatives to learning but currently there isn’t a central hub to connect these initiatives so that we can learn from each other and share best practice. The world is now an open platform and needs a global hub with inclusive education for everyone. This is what Legacy Learning will do.
Legacy Learning provides a virtual and face2face space where learners can access creative content that will enable them to discover what they love doing and are passionate about. It also provides a platform for teachers and educators to learn different ways of teaching, for them to share best practice and become part of a global network for change.
Legacy Learning Online is a virtual learning platform, combining e-learning, facebook, you-tube, wikipedia and whatsapp technologies, free for any learner, anywhere in the world. It has the ability to create personalised learning journeys, assess how knowledge is being processed, gaps to be filled and makes suggestions for additional learning. Content is provided by our global contributors and filtered through a team of experts who will assess relevance, placement and create specific communities of learning. (www.legacylearning.global)
Legacy Learning Hubs will utilise existing inspirational spaces around the world to deliver passion-based, experiential learning tailored to individual needs. Our team will connect and collaborate with local initiatives and provide leadership and development to align with Legacy Learning principles.
Legacy Learning Academies are spaces where teachers can learn how to teach differently and share what they know with a global network of like-minded individuals. It is our ambition to have four global academies in the first three years of funding based in Los Angeles, London, Tokyo and Dubai.
Each part of the solution will ultimately become self sustaining and symbiotic in terms of growth and management.
Our partners for the design, delivery and implementation of Legacy Learning are Fusion Universal who are already making a hugely positive impact with their Fuse School, providing free secondary education for everyone.
