#AskAQuestion: Did you meet some cool changemaking (school) education on your travels? If yes where?
Yes, we did. Education is a huge part of changemaking. Actually India was the most fascinating from that point of view, we got quite involved in a network of homeschooling and unschooling families, we also interviewed several organizations which are looking for alternative ways like Project DEFY, Kanthari or STIR Education. One of the most fascinating initiatives about changemaking education across the globe is the Changemakers School project started by Ashoka. Also their tool kit Start Empathy is more-than-worth to have a look at.
Below there are few links to stories about changemakers with quite alternative approach to education:
