About Learn Do Share

Learn Do Share (LDS) is a grassroots innovation engine; a combination of events, labs and peer production. We are a community for open collaboration, design fiction and social innovation.

The three words LEARN, DO and SHARE embody our philosophy: we learn from everyone. we do by prototyping. we share what we learn.

Our events and labs are gatherings for ad-hoc groups to meet, ideate and work out concepts for a common good.

Our peer production cycles help groups stay together to co-create prototypes of their collective imaginations. The most prominent are Caine’s Arcade, My Sky Is Falling, and The BUKE.

Our books, documentaries and projects are carried forth by our participants to inspire other people to do the same.

Our Learn Do Share methodology and framework, which we like to call an OS (operating system) is being adapted by Universities, organizations and makerspaces as a tool to help tackle wicked problems by harnessing storytelling, play, designing thinking and collaboration. Over the last four years, we’ve collaborated with Jorgen van der Sloot and FreedomLab to design and prototype a social innovation lab to explore solutions for complex problems. The Learn Do Share lab runs at our events as well as having been staged for Columbia University, the UN, the City of Los Angeles, UNICEF and the Danish Government.

Learn Do Share heads to London


We’re thrilled to announce that Learn Do Share heads to London on Sept 5th and 6th for the first time. We’re partnering with Ravensbourne for what is shaping up to be an exciting program.

The London event’s theme is FUTURE CITIES.

The goal of Learn Do Share LONDON is to reflect the fact that the city is a leading tech and creative hub; a place for innovative thinkers. We also know that London is one of the greatest cities in the world – but it is facing tough challenges in the future. How can we harness technology and storytelling to make a difference? Quite simply, Learn Do Share will give thinkers and doers the space to share ideas and find ways to bring good ideas to life to help make London a better place to live and work.
