Empowering Changemakers to Evolve Our World

Through Education, Everyday Actions, and Entrepreneurship 

Evolution University is an online school for changemakers and entrepreneurs inspired to create programs, products, and services with positive benefits to society and our planet. To successfully achieve sustainability, we need to reinvent the way we interact with the world both individually and collectively. In doing so, we can imagine and create a world that is much better for humanity and the planet than the one we have now.  

The next decade is pivotal for defining, innovating, and making the changes. Evolution University supports this process by providing education, resources, and community, enabling us to learn, grow, and work together to solve these problems. The need to take action has never been greater and the time to act is now. Let's get to work, let's make it happen!

Our Unique Approach to Solving Sustainability Issues

Featuring the "EVOLVE Sustainability Framework" and "Compassion-Centered Stakeholder Approach"

"How is it possible the most intellectual being that ever walked the planet is destroying its only home? I think it's a disconnect between the clever brain and the human heart, which is love and compassion." - Dr. Jane Goodall 
From young activists like Greta Thunberg to wise elders like Jane Goodall, the call for action for people and the planet is widespread. With news reports and personal stories of the dire effects of climate change and societal shortcomings, the problem is not as much a lack of awareness that change needs to happen, but more about how people can engage and take meaningful action for change.

Evolution University helps solve this problem with a unique and highly relatable action-oriented approach to education. Knowledge and inspiration is delivered through our online courses, social media series, instructor leadership, a global knowledge sharing community, and resources, books and blogs that align to the Global Goals that unify us.

Our founder, Joni Roberts, recently created a new and exciting EVOLVE Sustainability Framework that helps individuals and organizations take action for a better world. The framework is simple, engaging, and impactful and features a new Compassion-Centered Stakeholder Approach that serves to counter the damage done by the profit driven industrial era.

Woven throughout our teachings are the 5 Essential Mindsets that EVOLVE Us and Our World: Global, Compassion, Abundance, Growth, and Changemaker that Joni identified as core to the mindsets, behaviors, and skills required to transform our world.

Evolution University’s unique teachings and alignment with sustainability frameworks like the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement for climate change, provide powerful programs to address the urgent changes needed now.

Evolve Our World

Through Everyday Actions & Entrepreneurship

Many of us are concerned about the critical state of our planet from the air to the oceans and everything in between. We are living in the aftermath of 200 years of industrialization, resulting in major advancements for societies as well as devastating deficiencies, including being unsustainable for our planet and future generations. It's up to us to take action to do things differently.  The exciting part is with possibilities thinking and a great amount of perseverance, we can solve these problems one person, one community, one company at a time.

Everyday Actions

Creating a better world starts with each of us, everywhere, making positive changes and taking everyday actions. We can no longer pretend someone somewhere else is going to solve the problems we contribute to each day.  

The upside is when our individual actions are replicated by millions and billions of people around the world, we can make exponential impact together. Now that's something to be excited about!

All of us can get better at being good to the planet and one another. Doing the right thing starts in our homes, our communities, and our companies. As you look around, you will see ample opportunities to make a difference everyday, everywhere.

Today is a good day to take action!

THINK BIGGER: ALIGN TO THE GLOBAL GOALS

The Global Goals for 2030
A Multi-trillion Dollar Opportunity

It's one thing to say let's create a better world, and a more challenging undertaking to make it happen. It will take all of us, everywhere to make the necessary changes. We need individuals to take everyday actions and changemakers and entrepreneurs to innovate and implement new products and services that will bring greater harmony with nature and wellbeing to societies. 

With so many challenges, you may wonder how you can make a difference. An ambitious plan underway is the Global Goals to transform our world by 2030. All member countries of the United Nations have signed on and agreed to set the Sustainable Development Goals as priorities. Success requires competent leadership and strategic alignment from global to local levels.

Based on the "Better Business Better World" report produced by the Business and Sustainable Development Commission, the pathway presents a multi-trillion dollar opportunity with a 5-15 year first mover advantage.  There is an abundance of work to be done and new growth to be generated across many areas of interest. The future is ours to create.

What people are saying  

This is a great program for entrepreneurs and businesses. Joni is a MBA professor and entrepreneur who can guide you from idea development to proof of concept and business development. Don't miss this opportunity to learn from a top international entrepreneur and consultant on how to take your business or idea to the next level.
Freddie zeringue, president, polar controller
I had no shortage of business ideas. Over the years, I collected dozens of them. Within minutes, with one PDF as my guide, I was able to logically evaluate each of them as an entrepreneur would. Five minutes saved me time, money, frustration. I was able to identify an achievable goal worth pursuing. My cluttered pool of ideas has become crystal clear and I'm truly ready to dive in.
elle obi, activist & educator
I definitely recommend these workshops. The questions are brilliant. They got me moving from emotion to realism. My business was being pulled in so many directions I was getting frustrated. I wanted to work hard but knew my hard work wouldn't produce my desired outcome because it wasn't focused on a specific strategy. After taking the courses I had relieved myself of so much pressure and I felt focused again. Through an outstanding discussion and the sharing of my ideas, I received both validation and constructive feedback.
Matthew burn, coach & financial advisor
I would strongly recommend that anyone in business should sit this Mini MBA irrelevant of how long you've been in business. Created and delivered perfectly.
steve sadler, creator & educator
Thank you for making this opportunity available and in this forum. Incorporating compassion and purpose understanding into a business idea platform is exactly what I need and want for the next chapter of my life.
