"We can change the world, rearrange the world... it's dying... to get better."

- lyrics from Chicago by Graham Nash


At One Planet Education Network, our mission is to promote scientific literacy along with cross-cultural understanding, and to inspire a passion for lifelong learning. We not only want to prepare the global community of learners for the 21st-century workplace, but also to better prepare them to work together to effectively contend with the major challenges confronting our civilization.
