We believe that the future of Education is Learning. Lifelong Learning that is Challenge driven, Mission fueled and Crowd sourced. That is, nothing is done as an academic exercise, but instead everything contributes towards Making A Difference.
A Difference for the Individual itself and targeted challenges - collectively feeding into a crowdsourced, constantly expanding and developing knowledge repository. A library of knowledge of the learning process itself, as well as the ground breaking tools, approaches, and solutions for the biggest societal challenges of our time.
A library that instead of hard bookshelves is a thriving community and constantly evolving transdisciplinary and diverse narrative. A narrative that is not defined by the elite, but rather by the masses. The overlooked Pioneers who have been called mad. Mad because they refuse to settle with the status quo.
These, the MAD changemakers, are the ones who are mad enough to think they can change the world.
And thus we know they will.

Sanitation leap briefing in Stockholm School of Economics
In March MAD briefed 45 students at Stockholm School of Economics who were heading to Uganda to work on the MAD Sanitation Leap- and midway through our briefing, Sweden was added to the list of classification 1 countries - meaning that the students would no longer be able to travel.
Although the students were disappointed they cannot go to Uganda physically at this time, they were quick to find ways to Make A Difference virtually... and so a virtual project is in the making! Watch this space for the project updates!
