CEE Changemaker Education Forum


by Pavlína Hořejšová

For two days at the end of November, twenty two exceptional innovators working to transform the way children are educated in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, Austria and Germany convened to learn about each other’s work, share know-how’s and explore partnership opportunities in order to increase social impact of their innovations on a national and international level. The meeting was organized in the magic place of Vila Pevnostní 8 – Home of The Běhal Fejér Institute thanks to the great generosity of Ilona Fejer Wiss

A unique exchange and even emerging cooperation evolved around topics such as:

*strengthenning civic education so that every child grows up feeling they can be a changemaker (Centrum občanského vzdělávání, Hősök Tere,Demokratikus Ifjúságért Alapítvány, Initiative for Teaching Entrepreneurship, Ashoka).

*building bridges between resources in formal and non-formal education (SchulePLUS, EDUin)

* setting up local multistakeholder dialogues on the development of education (Fundacja Rozwoju Dzieci im. Jana Amosa Komeńskiego (Comenius Foundation), Igazgyöngy Alapítvány – Berettyóújfalu).

* supporting teachers and school headmasters to transform their school into a truly inspiring place (Fundacja Humanites, CEEV Živica, Budai Városkapu Iskola).

* working with art/science/very practical basic life skills as tools to increase kids’ autonomy, foster empathy and lifelong curiosity (Polska Akademia Dzieci, VĚDA NÁS BAVÍ o.p.s., SuperTrieda – SuperClass, Berufsparkur & Talenthaus).

* creating inspiring learning environment for children (Nadace Proměny).

* supporting talent development of children of every socio-economic background (ČOSIV – Česká odborná společnost pro inkluzivní vzdělávání) including those with exceptional talents (LEAF, Matehetsz. A tehetség sokszínű, Objevitelské soboty).

…..and others!

Let’s work together to bring this collaboration to the next level!

Why we decided to organize such forum?
Our society’s most systematic attempts to develop young minds today takes place at school. But the development of young people is as well heavily influenced by people and organizations beyond the walls of the school and this experience is also hugely important for young people’s development. We believe, therefore, that if anybody is to transform the education experience for young people in the 21st century, the full participation of key influencers from across the education ecosystem, including formal and non-formal education providers, is essential.
