“I am very happy to have participated in “Tianmei’s World” events and met Adina and the other event participants. It was great to share ideas with everyone. It was definitely a different experience, so I strongly support all the concepts that TMWA promotes, as well as their events.”

"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” 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. It does so by turning any available space (e.g. coffee shops, offices etc.) into an alternative learning environment.
Video introduction of Tianmei's World Academy
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 “one-size-fits-all” educational methods currently in use in many institutions/organizations.
A platform that aims to innovate the education sector, looking to provide equal access to education to everyone across cultural, language, economical and geographical barriers, focusing on individual needs rather than one-size-fits-all approach currently existing in traditional education systems.
A holistic (systemic) approach to problem-solving
Supports individuals explore for themselves what kind of learning environments and methods are more suitable for themselves;
Creates a more diverse and inclusive learning environment;
Supports host venues enhance user experience;
Facilitates behavioral change through education and direct action;
Does applied research to provide the most suitable solutions for various problems that different organizations might face.
We understand that individual talent is not so reliant on individual ability, but can be harnessed through proper learning environments and methods.
By providing the knowldge and tools to do so, we make the world a better place with happier people.
Empower each and every individual beyond financial and geographical barriers to understand how to create better living, learning and working environments suitable for their own individual needs by leveraging the power of environmental psychology research.
Diversity (in delivery methods),
Inclusivess (to different needs),
Equality (in starting points and access to opportunities),
Cross-functional dialog (to promote systems and critical thinking)
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.
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.
