We are a Planet-Centred Edu-Tech research studio based in Barcelona created in 2019, that designs workshops, methodologies and learning objects to empower people for a planet-centred future.
We are developing a STEAM methodology to strengthen the educational process in schools, which can be adapted to different curricula without affecting them, adding creativity, innovation and problem-solving based on the United Nations SDGs, to strengthen different skills for the 21st century in students while helping to form more conscious citizens for the planet.
We carry out personalized workshops on creativity, innovation, digital manufacturing, design thinking, 3D printing and Arduino for schools, universities, companies, design studios and communities, to meet the needs of each entity. In these workshops we seek to strengthen specific skills of the attendees, and empower them in the use of emerging technologies and methodologies.
We help in the process of building or updating small laboratories for innovation in schools and communities, with basic technology for them to learn about innovation and digital fabrication, and use it for the benefit of the community.
Our main research is around the future of foods, climate change and STEAM education. We are seeking the way of empowering rural communities with design skills and distributed manufacturing for them to be able to create technologies that make them more resilient to climate change.
The world we live in is full of inequality, and social, cultural and gender differences that can be mitigated through education. Therefore we seek solutions to improve the quality of education in urban and rural areas through non-colonializing planet-centred technologies, for a more sustainable future.
We want to train citizens to become change-makers, that's why we design problem-based methodologies and objects to promote innovation and creativity in students while fostering other skills for the 21st century.
We investigate the role of education as a tool to strengthen societies towards a more sustainable world, in which innovation and creativity are skills that help communities become more resilient in different areas such as climate change and food security.
We believe that sustainability and regeneration is the only way to guarantee the existence of the human race in the long term, that is why we believe that design should not focus only on the human, but on the planet as a system in which we all coexist.
We believe that the role of education, beyond memorizing information as it is traditionally done, is to teach how to analyze and understand information to such an extent that something new can be created with that knowledge. That's why we research new models of education that can better prepare people for the challenges of the 21st century.
We believe that learning new emerging technologies coupled with the preservation of ancestral knowledge can help people become more resilient to climate change and other adversities. But this technology must be taught in a non-colonizing way, taking into account the ancestral knowledge of each community and respecting socio-cultural differences.
We believe in the power of creativity as a tool that we must foster in people so that they can be more resilient to the problems that affect them. We believe in collaborative creativity, and that members of a community have the solution to the problems that affect them, but they need empowerment to develop them.
The education of the last century considered the memorization of knowledge as the most important, but new theories suggest that the highest level in knowledge is creation, when after understanding information and analyzing it critically you can create something new with it.
That's why we focus our methodologies, workshops and projects on teaching skills with which people can create new things from knowledge mixed with their experience.
We try to align everything we do to support the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for 2030 in different ways, even dough our primary focus is in food security, climate action and natural resources.
We believe that by transmitting knowledge among people we could empower communities with skills and tools that help them to address some of the issues that affect their community towards a more equitable future.
We empower changemakers with knowledge, skills and tools
for them to build a planet-centered future.
