The Podcast on 21st Century Education and Those Who make it

Our project aims at the recognition of the community of Edupreneurial principals and teachers, i.e. of the actors of education who manage to transform the daily routines of their schools by their innovations, their creations, their solutions despite the different barriers that make such a process challenging.

We call these precursors and announcers of the education of the future "Edupreneurial", in order to underline their ability to rely on a particular mindset, the Entrepreneurial mindset, which has received a new and original definition in our book, the “Edupreneurial Mindset”.

The adjective “Edupreneurial” is used to qualify the ability of certain principals or teachers whose achievements are original, inspiring, innovative, unexpected, and at the same time useful, beneficial and often decisive, to act without extraordinary resources or outside a privileged context.

Twenty-One is the place where we celebrate the successes of these Edupreneurial Minds who transform their organizations.
