Educational Projects and campaigns


The CHANGES Curriculum Framework began as an after-school program for children in Melbourne, Australia. It was borne of the conviction that all learning can - and should - be enjoyable, and of a desire to take education beyond the four walls of a classroom by facilitating opportunities for learning in informal, recreational spaces. 

The name of the framework - CHANGES - speaks to a vision of education for change - and of holistic approaches to learning that empower young people to become changemakers in their world. Find out more about the Framework.

Over the years, the Framework has developed to become a blueprint for instruction in literacy, numeracy and the natural and social sciences, that is both rigorous and engaging. It is now also a starting point for an ongoing discussion among like-minded educators around the world who are working together to bring the Framework’s pillars to life.
