A Call to Action

The mission of Learn to Change (L2C) is to develop individual and collective potential to co-create and actively participate in a sustainable, open and peaceful society. Our vision is a world in which education is the foundation of a just, inclusive, thriving and peaceful society.

We – Carmen BECKER, Jean-Claude COUTURE, Ana ŽNIDAREC ČUČKOVIĆ, Mercè BERNAUS, Miguel ÁNGEL GARCÍA LÓPEZ, Charlot CASSAR, Audrey CHEYNUT, Vivian CHIONA, Carolina GONÇALVES, Milos JEREMIC, Jón Torfi JONASSON, Chrystalla KALOYIROU, Ildikó LÁZÁR, Gerrit MARIS, Gabriele MAZZA, Pascale MOMPOINT-GAILLARD, Guðrún RAGNARSDÓTTIR, Ólöf Þórhildur ÓLAFSDÓTTIR, Visnja RAJIC. Anna Maria PANAGIOTIDOU, Sabine ROHMANN, Jean STILES, Alessandro SORIANI, Marta VINES, Robin WILSON the members of L2C – are a group of dedicated education professionals and citizens who strive to transform our education structures and practices so that education serves the vision of a society we want to live in.

L2C strives to carry on the message or the Manifesto: ‘Education for Change – Change for Education’ that calls for an important change of mindsets. It was presented at a conference organized by the Council of Europe, in April 2014 and was adopted by 200 teachers from all over Europe.

As many before us, we agree that education can help answer the challenges that lie ahead of us. For this we want meaningful education, one that affords the development of the personality, preparing youth, and adults, for a life as democratic citizens in diverse, just and humane societies, as well as for a future in a global workforce.

  • We emphasize that responsibility for active participation of every individual in a democratic society, without discrimination or violence, is shared between families, schools, universities, workplace, political and civil society.
  • We reconsider educators’ roles, promote democratic learning environments and view school, and other settings, as a learning communities.

Our philosophy and our methods support educational transformation for developing learners as whole persons (head, heart, hands). 

  • We offer training through courses, workshops, and conferences at local and international levels;
  • We support the educational activities through consultancy and direct services in formal and non-formal contexts;
  • We collect and spread ideas that promote educational transformation through our resource center and publications;
  • We develop and assess competence for democracy;
  • We seek to influence through advocacy.

What we mean by Collective and how you can join us

In this article, we talk about what we mean by Collective – the new form chosen by L2C – and how you can join it.

Learn to Change is launching an exploration: Announcement for the Collective

Learn to Change’s members held a General Assembly in fall 2022, in which the decision was taken to transform the association into a less formal, and more agile entity. Therefore, we will change status, going from an ‘organization’ to a less formal entity that we name “The collective”
