“To recognize and understand the problems of the world, we need a reform in thinking. It is the fundamental question for education.”

Edgar Morin, UNESCO, Seven complex lessons in education for the future

Join the Adventure…

H3Uni is an educational enterprise dedicated to empowering people to develop the skills and experience necessary to foster transformative innovation in their communities and organisations.

Our vision is a worthwhile future for everyone.

H3Uni offers collaborative practices that transform the way we think and act together – locally, globally, and all points in between.

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.

We believe that real impact will come from learner-led in person and online platforms for collaboration, allowing for the building of collective wisdom over time.

This includes H3Uni Lighthouse Cafes that provide space for growing relationships through conversations that matter; expanding H3Uni’s ability to deliver online courses; and providing the training and infrastructure for a community of practice centred on collaboration skills.

“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.”


Thomas Homer-Dixon

“Ultimately, when we talk about sustainability from a whole systems design perspective, what we are trying to sustain is not just the future of the human species but also the pattern of ecologically interdependencies and planetary health upon which the fate of our own and so many other species depends.”

Daniel Wahl

“Future generations, if there is a liveable world for them, will look back at the epochal transition we are making to a life-sustaining society. And they may well call this the time of the Great Turning.”

Joanna Macey

“The only effective action is that which touches the minds and not the material natures of men.”


“New thinking starts with greater insight into the transformation that ushers in a new world in place of the old. But for new thinking to be effective, we should have some idea of what it involves. Just what kind of a process is the birthing of a new world?”

Erwin Laszlo

“Changing the way we think means continually shifting our point of orientation. We must make time to look inward: to be, aware of, and study, the tacit “truth” that we take for granted, the ways we create knowledge and make meaning in our lives, and the aspirations and expectations that govern what we choose from life.”
