"We can't choose the environments where we are born in and how we are educated, yet these affect the choices we have or not in life. What we can do is to choose to understand how these environments affect our personalities and behaviors and use this knowledge to maximize our individual potential. "

What is "Tianmei's World" Academy?
The first “network of classrooms” educational concept in the world
"Tianmei's World" Academy (TMWA) is the world's first decentralized “network of classrooms” school concept, using environmental psychology knowledge with the aim to redefine where and how learning happens.
By understanding what are the elements that combine to create a nurturing learning environment, Tianmei's World Academy is able to turn any available space (e.g. coffee shops, offices etc.) into an alternative learning environment.
By experiencing the different learning environments that the academy creates, individuals can better understand what kind of learning environments and methods are most suitable for their own learning and self-development needs, apply them in their daily lives and maximize their individual potential against the “one-size-fits-all” type of mindset.

Get to Know Us
“Tianmei's World” represents a set of values that the founder wants to make available for everyone.
We don't get to choose our growing up environments, yet they influence what we experience and what we become. So,“Tianmei” is a person who, given her upbringing, just happened to come across values that she felt more people should know about and be able to use. But anyone who feels empowered by these values is "Tianmei".
The “world” represents the environment that we are aiming to create through the values that we promote and the work that we do.
that we integrate in all the learning programs we design
Learning happens everywhere
The important thing is to understand what you want to learn and why (purpose).
Talent is nurtured
Talent depends on how nurturing one's environment is, not on individual ability.
Multiple ways of learning
There are multiple ways of learning, so explore to find the one most suitable for your own needs.
Everyone loves to learn
They just need to find the learning method and environments most suitable for their own learning needs beyond a "one-size-fits-all" approach.
Our Working Model
Environmental Psychology is the discipline that studies the influence that different environments (both physical and social) have on human behaviour and mindset formation.
Main Research Questions:
1) How do different environments (family, school, office, hospital, public space, etc.) affect people's psychological state, perception, attitude, behaviour, learning outcome and work productivity?
2) How can individuals and groups change their environments to reduce stress, maximise their potential, increase work productivity and enhance learning outcome?
3) What is the connection between our personality and the environment we were brought up in?
4) How can we use environmental design to influence pro-environmental behavior?
At Tianmei's World Academy, we use environmental psychology to create better learning, working and living environments. We allow each person to experience how different environments influence them and allow people to learn how to create the most suitable environments for themselves, beyond a "one-size-fits-all" approach.
