Earlier this year, Ashoka's Start Empathy team, supported by Youth Venture, mobilized more than 70 visionary educators, social entrepreneurs and students from the #ChangemakerEd network. The purpose? To collaborate and reimagine what education can be in these unprecedented times of accelerated change. In the video series below, brave educators explore, in their own words, why teachers, school leaders, parents, and students must reimagine education today, and what is at stake if we do not succeed. WATCH our new series and step into the #ChangemakerEd movement, now!
