Ashoka Scandinavia Changemaker Schools

In Scandinavia, Ashoka is creating a network of schools (up to university level) from Sweden, Denmark and Norway that are cultivating Changemaker Skills among students. No two Changemaker Schools look the same in how these skills are cultivated, but they will be united under a broad set of common characteristics in relation to their vision, learning environment, innovation and leadership.

Each year, a small number of Changemaker Schools will be selected across Scandinavia by applying Ashoka's 35 year old methodology of searching and selecting the world’s leading social entrepreneurs. Leading Changemaker Schools in Scandinavia will therefore be connected to a global network of education institutions that see changemaker skills as the future, are leading the way, and are open to co-creating an Everyone A Changemaker world with each other and Ashoka.
