About Partner

What goes into a child's mind is more important than what goes into her body! Join our unique MediaParenting™ community of parents committed to raising media-aware children in a complex digital age.


Should your child spend another summer staring at a screen all day? Sign up for our two-day summer workshop to set your child up for two months of creativity!

Yes, it’s vacation time and your child needs a well-deserved break from school. But does that mean vegetating on the sofa/ bed, watching TV, playing video games, couch surfing YouTube or scrolling social media sites?


Other Description

The world is changing as we speak and rewarding CREATORS not consumers.

* Do you know that by 2034, almost 50% of all jobs will be automated? The safest jobs – are those that require human creativity.

This summer, prepare your child to grow from a mindless consumer to a joyful creator.

Invest two days of workshop for two months of creativity this summer – and a life-long creative attitude!

Most people in the world are consumers – consuming products and services, while being in the daily rut of the 9-5 (or 9-9!). A small precious elite are the thought leaders, the change makers, the value builders - because they create.

​Because the future belongs to CREATORS.

So sign up for The Audacious Life - Foundation Program today.
