Why do you want to be a part of the HundrED Community?

We would like to be part of a community that is innovative and wants to make a positive change in the world.

How can education support students to flourish?

Socially and economically empowered children and young people who act as agents of change in their own lives for a more equitable world.

What role does innovation play in education change?

Especially in this time of Covid-19 it is important to be innovative how to reach children, especially the most vulnerable, with quality education. We cannot teach children only in the class room anymore.

Three HundrED innovations you love. (and Why?)

1. Co-Publishing Project : Inspire Taiwan children from remote schools learning motivation, because they really inspire and help economically disadvantaged children.

2. United World Schools,  because the do amazing work in remote and marginalised communities in some of the world's poorest regions and give every child access to free education.

3. Kabakoo Academies , because their approach is creative and has technical innovations.
