The Global Change Leaders (GCL) are a community of systemic leaders who evolve education systems into 'learning ecosystems' that empower every person to live for the greater good.
We launched in January 2018 in Lyon (pictures here ), one of 15 city or regional 'learning ecosystem prototypes' on 5 continents. The collaborative has 400 leaders from institutions such as Ashoka, OECD, Skoll, UN, Harvard, Cambridge, Vodafone, Microsoft, Brookings and more.
Mission: To weave the global community of Change Leaders creating learning ecosystems that empower every young person to live for the greater good.
Vision: 1 billion more young people empowered to live for the greater good.
The GCL helps Change Leaders scale their impact in education by building:
+ Communities & Teams
+ Capacity & Knowledge
+ Conversations & Demand
