Dr. Leyla Acaroglu
UnSchool Founder + Global Change Maker
“The Disruptive Design workshop far exceeded my expectations. The content has given me a practical way to delve into complex problems, exploring thinking far beyond my normal lines of inquiry, and to surface new areas for intervention and innovative ways of designing those interventions. Everyone who is tackling systems should learn this.”
“This masterclass has definitely stretched my brain. My brain does hurt but it was absolutely worth it, my work will be less stressful now that I can sift through my messy brain. Thank you for saying it’s okay to procrastinate and that it helps, thank you for reminding me that we need to be more compassionate because we need more people to adhere to sustainability in order to make the world better, we just can’t do it alone.”
“The UnSchool has had a profound effect on me by redefining the way in which I view the world and altering my reflection upon past experiences. I felt continuously stretched and challenged, but ultimately transformed both personally and professionally. It has been the catalyst to inspire change in ourselves before we set out to change our worlds.”
