SelfDesign Learning Foundation Welcome

The SelfDesign Graduate Institute (SDGI) represents the vision that Brent Cameron (founder of the SelfDesign Learning Foundation in British Columbia, Canada) had of a post-graduate education program that embodies the theory and praxis of lifelong learning through SelfDesign. It is through Brent’s vision and the partnership between the SelfDesign Learning Foundation and the SelfDesign Foundation in Washington State that SDGI has become a reality that provides inspiration and growth to SDGI graduates and to the world around them. SDGI employs the trademark “SelfDesign” through an agency agreement between the two foundations.
