Manish Jain on Unschooling, Gift Culture and Deep Localisation - E39
How can we revolutionise learning and education to serve humans and non-humans better?
In this episode Amisha sits down with Manish Jain - social entrepreneur, writer, thinker and founder of the Unschooling movement in India.
Manish has founded 25 alternative university campuses in India without any startup capital, created a network of 100 radical learning centres globally and is now persuading thousands of organisations to hire people without formal educational degrees into roles previously reserved for graduates.
We hear the story of his own schooling and unschooling, as well as the pivotal moments that led him to question some of our most deeply entrenched societal norms around economy and education.
Manish speaks about the fears that hold us back from disrupting systems that no longer serve us and what we as individuals and communities can do today, for free, to create radical shifts in education and economy. He tells of the magic that happens when we weave a field of trust in our community, why he supports ‘alternative child labour’ and his latest project establishing a university inside a jail.
