Thought-leaders from across the world of learning have come together to raise funds for those affected by the tragedies unfolding in Ukraine and everybody in learning and development can take part.

The group have established the Learning for Ukraine campaign, and are running a one hour webinar on the future of learning and development. Participants are being asked to donate £30, with all proceeds going directly to the British Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal.

Each individual will be given the floor for ten minutes to answer one simple question: ‘How should L&D prepare for the future of learning?’. There will also be discussions between these thought-leaders, so you're guaranteed to get lots of useful takeaways.”
