Announcement for the Collective

In 2023, Learn to Change is launching an exploration!

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’.

What do we mean by “a collective”?

A collective is a group of people who come together informally for a common purpose, who are willing to give time for positive change. The L2C collective does not have a legal entity and so it is a de facto or undeclared association. If you agree with our vision, if you appreciate and use L2C’s resources and materials, you might wish to join the collective! Our work will focus on the dissemination of the popular card game ‘Cards for Democracy’ (C4D) and the general question of our alignment with values when we practice teaching). We opted for this focus because the cards have proven to be of interest to many educators and we wish to make it more available to educators who wish to develop a democratic practice of teaching

There are 3 ways to belong the collective:

Become an Advocate

Become an Advocate to let others know and be seen with like-minded educators!

As an advocate you will become a supporter of our collective and join our card for democracy online community and contribute to the conversation subscribe to our blog and comment, like & share our publications on social media and even send feedback to us once in a while on your use of the materials.
