Welcome to H3Uni
A University for the Third Horizon
Navigation is an Art.
“To recognize and understand the problems of the world, we need a reform in thinking. It is the fundamental question for education.”

H3Uni is an educational enterprise dedicated to transformational learning that empowers people to foster transformative innovation in their communities and organisations.
Our big vision is a global network of learning leaders working for a viable and fulfilling future for subsequent generations in contrast to the prevailing trends.
Realising this vision requires a fearless adventure into learning how to collaborate ethically and creatively so that together we can build beacons of hope, thoughtful action and reconciliation throughout society.
Our aim is to co-create an educational network where all members are learners dedicated to increasing their knowledge and skill in leading participatory processes that accelerate the thoughtful deep system changes needed for a transformed global humanity. That is the curriculum in essence.
To navigate the complexity of transformation from a 1st Horizon to a 3rd Horizon through a turbulent 2nd Horizon in a way that leaves everyone feeling more hopeful and empowered, is as much an art and craft as it is knowledge.
H3Uni supports individuals and groups to develop capacities to lead participatory processes. These processes are gateways into refining group facilitation techniques that support shared purpose and meaning, navigating uncertainty and leveraging complexity.
These interactive practices are based in strategic foresight, systems thinking, developmental learning, scenario planning, complexity and ‘second order science’, which combined, ensure that people are empowered to work together towards common goals easily and effectively.
Three Horizons is a simple and intuitive tool for thinking about the future. It helps groups explore systemic patterns to identify which of the dominant patterns are no longer fit for purpose how the emerging trends can shape the future, and what visionary action is needed to collectively move us towards a viable future.
The IFF World Game offers an easy, interactive way for groups to look at complex challenges that includes both the depth and the breadth necessary to understand interactions across a system.
The Wheel of Wisdom holds eight archetypal Roles of Leadership that awaken, energise and support collective and personal learning-in-action. With their reflective insights, people can find intelligence, humanity and power in their differences, form coherent choices, and make decisions together in resonance with their deepest values and heartfelt purpose.
“We are entering a crucial time in our history. In coming decades we’ll come upon one critical junction after another in rapid succession. The choices we make and the paths we choose at each junction will be irreversible. The stakes are as high as they can get.”
