Giancarlo Brotto

Global Education Catalyst

I engage with government officials, policy-influencing organization, thought leaders, school system decision makers and researchers to gain insights and influence trends in the education sector. I am a catalyst for those that don't just want to talk about change but want to do their part to make it a reality. I regularly share my insight through Twitter,  LinkedIn and my dynamic, audience engaging mindset has me regularly facilitating experiences with education stakeholders across the globe. I have served on the informal advisory group for the Skills for Social Progress Project – OECD, sat on the board of directors for C21 Canada- organization promoting 21st Century learning across Canada and am currently the Chair of the Samuel Beatty Fund at the University of Toronto – promoting the study of STEM across the province, member of the steering committee for Karanga - the global alliance for SEL and life skills and Executive Director and Cofounder of Catalyst – international organization that accelerates education transformation by turning ideas into action.

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

Passionate about seeing transformation in education my passion lies in not only identifying camp fires (innovations) but in turning camp fires into forest fires.

How can education support students to flourish?

The intersection of understanding the fundamental principles of education - relationships and evolving the way in which technologies enable the impossible to become possible.
