Connected Learning

Established in 2001 — YCN is an ever-growing community of creatively minded people and organisations, learning and doing new things together.

Our Members are learning and working around the world — from a design maestro like Michael Wolff to sensational retailer LUSH Cosmetics; entrepreneurial strategist Frances Croxford to global crusaders Greenpeace.

We develop a deep understanding of our Members' individual learning goals and expertise — and design resources, contexts and programmes through which these can be collectively served, shared and fulfilled.

Whether it's through our thriving events programme, or coursesbespoke learning partnerships or lending library; daily connecting or student engagement efforts — we are committed to helping our Members learn and do new things together.

Why not make joining YCN your new thing for today?
