The 1 Billion Mission:

Teach one billion people how to make a living, doing what they love (without losing their soul). #1BminusOne project is an ambitious undertaking to change the way we teach and learn. Make education equitable for students and teachers!

Chris Do
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. Institutions are slow to change. Committees are where good ideas and innovative thinking go to die. Choose agility over dogma. Embrace and drive change. We need to wipe the slate clean and begin with bold, radical thinking.

We have a simple idea—put money, attention and resources where they're most effective—in front of students, not in administration, buildings, parking lots or monuments. 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. Enlist a global network of the most dynamic teachers, and allow them to profit from their ideas.

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

That’s because we believe the future of learning 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.

Welcome to The Futur— Private art school without the crippling debt.
