The Global School was co-founded and initiated in 2015 by Jean Marteau with the support of Option 2.0 and Generation Europa after the Global Youth Exchange on the topic “Local Democracy In A Changing World” for which the team and network, as a whole, received the European Youth Project Awards.


First called IDM Open School, the Global School started as an experiment and local action of the Idea Machine Initiative in Vienna at the International Youth Hostel Brigittenau and at our partners locations the School for refugees & Cafe “Prosa”.

The project then developed over the years that followed, evidenced by the great achievements, such as: the establishment of a core team, a locally and remotely talent and expert pool, the construction of a worldwide network, the launch of a Communication Agency in Vienna (Austria), but also the possibility to offer various options to join the community as its member, sponsor, customer and/or partner.


What is the Global School

The Global School is a multi sided work environment dedicated to co-learning and co-creation through practice within the community lab (com-lab). To achieve its goals the Global School invite in one side companies, organizations, collectives, independent freelancers, creatives and entrepreneurs to join the mentor and talent pool. While also hosting training as well as providing licenses, certifications and franchise mechanisms. Through affiliation, there are real cases for the students joining from the other side open for an innovative knowledge transfer directly from remote field experts all around the world.

Goals of the Global School

The main goal of the Global School is to encourage people to get involved in new synergies such as co-learning and co-creation activities and most specifically all generations thanks to its dynamic and contemporaneous format.

The co-learning experience was already honored with several prices for youth empowerment. The mentors open their working environment and share their knowledge about the practice behind the theory. With real projects on the task list the students build their own career reference.

One of the main intention of the Global School is to demonstrate that with the proper methodologies people from all educational fields and levels can participate effectively in high innovation development and become the first generation of educated users. That is why the Global School aims also to provide modern platforms and organizations benchmarking, asset validation, trainings, regulatory and franchise mechanisms through the development of a tailored social impact experience. The certification program allows entrepreneurs and creatives to use the talent pool to support their professional process and projects.
