Rocket Moon We put young people, your people, and complex problems together.

Who Are We

Our purpose

The world is under pressure. Institutions need to respond. YLab places young people at the centre of re-generating institutions in every sector and every system.

Our work

YLab is a consulting, learning and digital storytelling enterprise that brings fresh thinking to complex social challenges.

YLab projects are led by YLab Associates.

We’re young people who bring multidisciplinary skills, future-focused ideas and different lived experiences to the challenges being explored.

How We Work

This kind of work isn’t business as usual.

We democratise 21st century learning;
facilitate inter-generational problem solving; and
convene a seat at the table for everyone, the like and unlike-minded.

Our work is underpinned by a unique framework and toolkit. Our research and experience demonstrates that there are 8  key roles to play in solving complex problems. We draw on different tools from this framework to design every product and service we deliver.

We created an online module for you to learn more about this framework

Our Clients

Conventional wisdom is wrong. Young people haven't stopped engaging with politics - politics long ago stopped engaging with them. We have an opening to get back in.
