The Atlassian Foundation was established by Atlassian with the vision of helping to make the world better. The Atlassian Foundation focuses upon two areas: education of disadvantaged youth and growing the Pledge 1% movement. To achieve its goals, the Foundation teams up with others and draws upon the resources of Atlassian.
“At Atlassian, we’re committed to improving lives through education. We have the goal of helping to educate 10 million disadvantaged youth within 10 years. We have enormous respect for Education Changemakers and HundrED,” said Mark Reading, Head of the Atlassian Foundation. “We believe that by partnering, we can help to improve the Australian education system, with a particular focus on helping educators and students in those schools with the fewest resources.”
Being part of HundrED Spotlights creates authentic connections with passionate innovators, schools, young people and partners to help education change for the better. For example last year, as part of HundrED’s annual list, 100 Global Innovations of 2017, Victoria based, Playground Ideas, an open source platform for playground designs, was selected and has helped to build 1885 playgrounds across 143 countries, reaching nearly one million children.
