Learning Societies unConference 2017

We are pleased to share with you that we are co-hosting the next Learning Societies Unconference in Bangalore with Bhoomi College and Shikshantar from December 26-30, 2017. This unconference will bring together all kinds of amazing people of all ages working on alternative education, deschooling, decolonization, sustainable living, social entrepreneurship and expanding consciousness. We are expecting more than 800 people from around the country. The entire event will be in an unconference format.

We would like to invite you to join us for this event. Please also pass this onto your team.

Here is a little video glimpse of the immense joy we experienced at the 9th Learning Societies unConference 2016. The unConference took place from December 14 – 19, 2016 at Gandhi Vidya Mandir, Sardarshahr, Churu (Near Bikaner)  Rajasthan. It was hosted in Hindi, English and regional languages.


Participants are requested to join for the entire duration of the unConference so as to explore, express and nourish our creative energies together. This intergenerational gathering will bring together leading “thinker-doers” from around South Asia who are active in challenging the monopoly of factory-schooling and monoculture, and nurturing diverse learning communities, vernacular traditions, intercultural dialogues, deep consciousness and swaraj.  There will be alternative educators, organic farmers, artists, artisans, activists, designers, ecologists and nature lovers, filmmakers, healers, social entrepreneurs, homeschoolers, unschoolers, barefoot innovators, grandparents, youth, spiritual seekers, and more. As with all learning societies events, the unConference welcomes families, youth and children.

In an unConference, the participants co-create the agenda together around what matters deeply to them. We believe each participant is a resource person, even children. We believe in sharing our stories, talents and gifts from our hearts. There will be a lot of open space for participants to self-organize in groups around questions, experiences, experiments, workshops, play, music, talks, dance, ultimate frisbees, cooking food, treks, art, etc., in the spirit of deep dialogue and friendship. The gathering seeks to engage the heart, hands, head and home, all of our senses and sensibilities, for re-imagining our lifestyles and systems.

We hope to build upon the reflection, dialogue and co-motion that have been initiated in the Learning Societies network already. There will be a lot of space in the unConference to explore radical ideas, proposals and projects. This is a fantastic opportunity to really re-think everything and  share our life experiments and questions. Most importantly, the central purpose of this gathering is to build strong friendships and critical connections across the country. Previous unConferences have been held in Sardarshahar (Raj), Pune, Himachal Pradesh, Udaipur, Mumbai, Brazil, Jordan, Pakistan and Iran.

The specific aim of CCL is to ensure social justice, human rights and quality of life for all children in India, with special focus on equitable quality education, care, protection and justice for marginalized and excluded children. The objectives of the Centre is to enable children to be treated as rights holders, to help institutionalize the human rights based approach into policy, law and practice on children, and to build the capacity of state and civil society for more effective realization of child rights.

About the Lecture:

In light of the recent developments in formulating a new education policy, it becomes imperative to understand the nuances of the existing education system in the country. Identifying and analysing the challenges that are currently plaguing the system with a complete understanding of the existing policy will pave the way for the formulation of an effective education policy and ensuring universalization of education. It is with this objective that this lecture is being organized wherein the speaker will throw light upon the challenges faced in implementing the 1986 Education Policy and set the arena for discussing and deliberating the need for formulating a new policy.

About the Speaker:

Prof. K. Ramachandran has worked as a journalist and a faculty member of the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT), New Delhi. He was associated with the processes leading to the formulation of the National Education Policy, 1986. He worked with UNICEF for about 18 years. Currently, he is advisor to the National University of Educational Planning and Administration (NUEPA), New Delhi.

UnBox: Future of Human Ecologies

UnBox returns to Bangalore on November 18th with a day-long, multi-format event that will bring together key experts from the UnBox network to host workshops and panel discussions, while students from Design Academy Eindhoven will also present projects that they are working on.


The world of the future seems to be a smart, fast, connected digital world and it is easy to get seduced by the potential it promises. There is a lot of hype around data-driven futures that will make everything, including our relationships with each other and the places that we live in, smarter and more efficient. However it is also important to focus on our shared humanity and the diversity of our complex lived experiences in our conversations about the future.

How can we find expression and meaning in a world shaped by technology, data, and algorithms? How can we think of technology that can manifest our shared culture and values that are also unique to place and context? How can we be educated participants in our own future?

This edition of UnBox seeks to start conversations about the role of technology in our society, and about how we want to navigate being human in a digital world.
