About the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

Collaboration is at the heart of everything we do, and we continue working in partnerships with incredible people at the forefront of innovation and creativity to develop our resources like LEGO, Skyscanner, and many more. We are inspiring our young people to build new things and to create meaning and sense in the networked world of today, this is about dreaming big and changing lives.

What does your innovation look like in practice?

Daydream Believers transforms education by plunging students into thrilling real-world challenges, such as designing a sustainable "Solarpunk Island" where students imagine and create a vibrant island community grounded in ecological balance and renewable innovation.

Starting with deep-dive research, students bring their visionary concepts to life through iterative design. They sharpen their communication skills by presenting their creative solutions and critically evaluate the impact of their work, gaining insights that foster personal and academic growth.

Supported by cutting-edge digital tools for assessment (our Stellar app), this journey not only empowers students with a robust understanding of environmental stewardship but also hones their abilities in critical thinking, creativity and problem-solving.

Daydream Believers - we take the "what" and the "why" and offer a "how."

How has it been spreading?

Daydream Believers is spreading its innovative educational approach through a passionate network of teachers who, rediscovering the joy of learning through our programs, become ambassadors of creative thinking. These educators share their experiences and the transformative impact of our curriculum with peers both locally and globally, inspiring a broader adoption across educational communities. Currently, over 150 schools are actively engaged in our Solarpunk Island challenge and Creative Thinking Qualification, demonstrating the compelling appeal and effectiveness of our approach in fostering creative skills and a proactive learning environment. This grassroots movement is pivotal in catalysing change and promoting our innovative educational model worldwide.
