Educational systems are now facing a major problem — they can’t keep up with the demands, desires, and needs of a rapidly advancing world.

People have more opportunities and more complicated lives than ever before, yet our universities haven’t evolved.

Schools are preparing kids for a world that no longer exists.

But in this episode of London Real, Brian Rose interviews Mindvalley Founder, Vishen Lakhiani, who is creating an alternative model of education to help people thrive in modern life. (Watch the full episode here.)
