Technology and globalisation are creating rapid and complex transformations. Our vision is to help societies adapt to this fast change, and to do it sustainably. We believe that education is the key to improving the state of the world and responsible use of technology is the lever we can use to bring education to not just students, but everyone, everywhere. Based in Switzerland, we are well positioned to access a large network of partners and collaborators from academia, industry and government. Although we are headquartered in Switzerland, our mission is global: We seek to do our part in changing the way the world thinks of education, as not just a tool, but a way of enriching lives.
