Classroom Thinktank
100 Creatives Rethink Learning


The Initiative


Using his professional background in creative consulting and innovation, Leonard Sommer started the Initiative CLASSROOM THINKTANK to encourage and enable dialogue and resources to be shared between creative industries and education.

Assuming the whole education system will need to make a radical transition in many countries around the world, he invited more than 100 creatives and education futurists in 35 countries, to inspire parents, teachers, principals, and ministries of education to rethink 21st-century education.

The initiative brings together thoughtleders to share interesting and relevant thoughts, concepts and inspirations on a new organizational design, learning culture and role of the teacher and parents as well as new teaching methods and an alternative assessment model. We want to inspire schools, school-leaders, teachers and ministries of education.

With our book and numerous training events, webinars and presentations, the non-profit initiative is trying to put the topic into practice, especially among school headmasters and teachers.
