“Many ideas grow better when transplanted into another mind than the one where they sprang up.” – Oliver Wendell
theCollab is an immersive multi-dimensional platform that strives to take collaborative engagement and learning to a new dimension. It aims to create f a ‘metaverse’ of solution seekers, social and environmental / climate activitists, education providers and changemakers. It is a space beyond walls within which to design, convene, collaborate and campaign in learning, unlearning and relearning for the needs of tomorrow. It’s new. It’s innovative and it’s being tested, co-created, iterated and improved. So …. whilst it may not yet be seamless, its a great start and we would love you to join the first partners looking to find a new way of engaging in 2021.
