My past 49 years have been devoted to being an entrepreneur. From the early age of 14 with various pioneering ventures and businesses later found me at a crossroads in 1999 when I started a journey devoted to a new era of lifelong learning.
Since arriving at that crossroads in life I have been concentrated on designing and creating sustainable rural villages, it was during this time that Learning in the 22nd century, L22c evolved. Creating a community where business and leisure, lifestyle, and learning mix refreshingly. It was becoming clear that we have to make available and affordable lifelong learning to everyone. A new era of learning anything, anywhere, from anyone, of any age, at any time…
When the vision of L22c came to me I could clearly see a global community of like-minded individuals focussed on joining together their wisdom and vision with excitement and uncertainty to create new ‘choices’ for the future. With a 100 year plan that includes a 15 yr short term and 30-year medium-term my belief is that the future of learning will be like nothing, we have previously experienced.
