Akasha Innovation is a not-for-profit social enterprise based in London that prepares, inspires and empowers a new generation of young changemakers to create a world for all life to flourish in. We offer transformative courses, coaching, mentoring, and residential retreats to young people, aged between 18 and 30, who cannot afford the costs of higher education and internships.
A new generation is inheriting a world full of crises not of its making. But we are also taking from them opportunities to address these social and environmental challenges. Young people are struggling to find the affordable and accessible education that would empower them to make their own positive impact for people and planet. We are at risk of losing an entire generation and our best hope to create a better future for people and planet. In a world now dominated by a consumer-model of higher education, we offer an innovative approach to the concept of learning for life: lifelong learning without the fees that take a lifetime to pay off. The outcome of this learning is not a degree, but individual, social and ecological change.
