Phoenix Education

Phoenix Education is a charity, with an overarching aim to work towards creating an education system that has a collaborative and consensual rather than authoritarian culture, where students and teachers have voices, autonomy and agency to influence their experiences of learning and their experience of the system.

We currently do this through our projects Freedom to Learn – networking and supporting innovators in and outside of the system who are committed to rights respecting, human-centred, socially just culture and practice in education, and Changemakers’ Lab which is working with people aged 14-18 on exploring and campaigning for the changes that they need to see to school and the education system, so that it better respects their rights and meets their needs.

We are currently developing ways to work directly with specific school leaders who want to explore opportunities and methods to integrate consent-based, self-directed and rights based approaches.

We have an annual event called the Freedom To Learn Forum, where we like to bring together all of the different aspects of our work and movement in an open space inspired unconference format to network, connect, have fun and share knowledge.
