Our
Approach

The problems facing humanity are more complex, interconnected and urgent than ever before. The modern workplace needs people who can tackle these kinds of issues and make a real impact on the world. The current university system can’t evolve quickly enough, so we need a new solution.



At Jamma we welcome those who take an innovative approach to the world’s most pressing issues. The London Interdisciplinary School is a very unique way of providing education and connects bright minds with real world issues. The London Interdisciplinary School launches in 2021 and is supported by some of the UK’s top intellectuals, industry experts, government and corporations who clearly see the need for this type of further education in our society.

Teaching students the knowledge and skills to create the change they want to see.

The London Interdisciplinary School places a premium on teaching. They have brought together a diverse and outstanding group of educationalists, with a team that includes philosophers, epidemiologists, artists, journalists, behavioural scientists and mathematicians as well as professionals and entrepreneurs. The sharing of mental models from across the boundaries of expertise will create new and relevant modes of understanding and experiencing the world.

“We don't know what the world of work will look like in 2050 but we do know that we will need brilliant problem-solvers who can tackle these issues in new ways.” - The London Interdisciplinary School

“At LIS we are founding an entire university based on interdisciplinary and non-disciplinary principles - the first of its kind in the UK” - Professor Carl Gombrich, Academic Lead at Head of Teaching and Learning at the London Interdisciplinary School

Jamma is currently looking for an office-based intern to support our existing projects through their technical and research skills.

Elephants Alive

In Sub-Saharan Africa, conservation is morally contested. This project explores some of the most important and contentious issues around conservation and sustainable use that are affecting people in Sub-Saharan Africa, where there appear to be major rifts between local and external moral worldviews. Jamma International is supporting this project in collaboration with the University of Oxford, Cornell University, and WWF Germany. The focus of this project is primarily on conservation areas in sub-Saharan Africa.
