The 1 Billion Mission:

Teach one billion people how to make a living, doing what they love. #1BminusOne project.

OUr Mission

One billion sounds bold. We agree.

"We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them."—Albert Einstein. We need to wipe the slate clean and begin with bold, radical ideas.

Let's start by eliminating the biggest barriers to education: cost and accessibility. Put money, attention and resources where it's most effective—in front of students, not in administrators, buildings, parking lots or monuments. Next, teach at scale. Make the content accessible to anyone, at any time, anywhere in the world.

Gather the most creative minds, technologists, learning designers, and inspirational professionals to teach 21st century skills including: design thinking, problem solving, entrepreneurship, strategy, experience design, communication, media, content marketing and design.

Bring people together to form a vibrant community and safe space to share, discuss and learn. Connect learners from different cultures, interests, age groups and life experiences.

That sounds modern, disruptive, and unlike any school out there!

That’s because we believe the future of school isn't a school at all—classrooms have no walls, students are never late, and classes are always in session. Welcome to the school of tomorrow.
