Learning a Living: Educating All for Economic Independence

Commitment by

Innovation Unit

In 2013, the Innovation Unit committed to apply the lessons and insights which have emerged from Innovation Unit's seminal work in researching radical innovation in education for work in order to improve learning outcomes for thousands of young people in cities that have been affected by recent challenges in the global economy. The focus of this effort will be the introduction of forms of learning that prepare people of all ages to make positive contributions to thriving economies and achieve their own independence and successful working lives. As well as demonstrating new learning models at scale with partner cities, this approach will build the infrastructure and appetite in cities across the world to adopt and spread them further over time.
