What's on

A new generation of changemakers is transforming our world. Who are they? And what are they doing?

A new generation of change makers is transforming our world. We see change from new and unexpected sources, shaped by new ideas and new voices. The power to influence others no longer lies exclusively in the hands of the business and political elite. 

As prolific advocates they operate in different sectors. But, like you, these change makers are united by a shared purpose - solutions to bring education, equity and employment to all. 

Through the theme of the Global Education & Skills Forum 2019 "Who is changing the world?" come and meet those individuals and groups who are achieving prolific change.
