As we unleash those skills, we connect young people to resources, networks and opportunities so that they can develop initiatives that remake the world. 


Over the last five years, the CIC team has been working with young people, schools and communities on a range of initiatives and this has allowed us to understand how CIC can be of most benefit. It’s time for CIC to be bold and go big. CIC is intent on expanding our offerings, extending our impact and working towards establishing CIC as an independent social enterprise led primarily by young people. 

Crazy Ideas College (CIC)

believes in young people as designers, inventors and social innovators.

Some of the beliefs that drive our efforts include:

ACT FAST

AND SMART

We favour action and experimentation - get moving, start smart, learn from mistakes and when the time comes, go big. 


In an era where it’s easy for people with different worldviews and life experiences to drift apart, we use diverse perspectives and talents as an asset to capitalise on. We build relationships, wisdom and empathy across generations and geographies. 

CONNECT BROADLY,

EMBRACE DIFFERENCE

Young people will be well supported and have access to an ecosystem of people, ideas, training, information and resources.  As the CIC journey unfolds, we will all learn new ways to foster and harness the passion and skills of young people. 


WE LEARN

TOGETHER

Young people will play a critically important role in redesigning, reshaping and remaking our world and communities. We'll help young people unleash their inner creative and build the skills, confidence and connections they need to drive change and thrive in the
modern world. 


YOUNG PEOPLE DRIVING CHANGE

IT'S TIME TO

FOLLOW HOPE

These are amazing times as the world
is shifting in surprising and important ways. Although our institutions and conventions have in many instances
served us well, the changing landscape means that our local communities and
the world at large are crying out for new approaches. Great things happen when we let our best hopes for the
future draw us forward.
