Today's young people are growing up in the fastest-changing period in human history. Within two decades their world will be unrecognisable. They will inherit an uncertain and challenged world. They will have jobs that don't yet exist but their education system was designed for yesterday's world, not today's nor tomorrow's. Do you want to join us and make a difference?
We want to help young people to design and shape a sustainable, equitable and socially progressive world. To do that, we need to change the way they learn and to do that we also need to equip next generations of educators with a sense of purpose and wellbeing.
We are Cymbrogi Futures. We seek to empower today's learners to shape tomorrow's sustainable world. We have developed a blended approach to sustainable learning, a hybrid of online and onsite learning making the most of our online presence and our amazing site situated in Lawrenny, Pembrokeshire, that enables students, educators, community activists and organisations to:
Establish sustainable ways of learning
Develop empowered learners
Create thriving communities and
Enable more sustainable futures
To achieve this we have developed a range of workshops, residential programmes and online learning modules guided by our Cymbrogi Learning Compass and the Cymbrogi Core Four which focus on Sustainable and Circular Futures, Wellbeing, Creativity and Collaboration.
