NxGenLearning – founded in 2001 by David and Sheila Lucas – co-creates with businesses, educators, policymakers, students and community members proactively to discover and cultivate the skills all citizens need to move beyond merely fitting in to the 21st Century digital economy. Our objective is to create finer futures with innovative solutions to thrive in the present and beyond. Our focus is to equip all citizens and organizations with the tools and frameworks to create and grow beyond an obsolete economy based on exclusion, mistrust and “inequity by design”1. A sustainable shift to a “regenerative economy that values healthy ecosystems, active civic engagement, and social equity.
