In our time of growing uncertainty, the world lacks common cultural practices to create a better future. We want to see a world where people are ready and able to learn from others and explore new insights with them. Our mission is to create intercultural spaces where globally connected people learn and explore collectively.
In the 13th century, the travels of an Italian merchant to China became the first best-seller in Europe - so fantastic did it seem that we could even describe a world so remote. Today, millions of new Marco Polos are interacting daily with unfamiliar places and people. As globalisation brings more of us together across cultures and languages, we must invent new forms of learning for the Marco Polos of today and tomorrow. Founded in 2011 and inspired by the multicultural fabric of Melbourne, Marco Polo Project exists in order to inspire and create new ways to bring cultures together.
