Home of 21st Century Education is a place, where you and your children — by culture, arts and play — can learn how to positively change the future.

Why it matters

The world is changing fast and children growing up today will have to co-create a more sustainable society tomorrow. For this they will need to develop new skills our school system hasn’t been always focusing on.

All places which are certified as Homes of 21st Century Education adhere to following characteristics:
