5. BECOMING EMPOWERED TO PRACTICE CHANGEMAKING – How do people become empowered to live for Universal Wellbeing?
6. EMPOWERING LEARNING ECOSYSTEMS – What systemic changes are necessary to empower everyone to live for Universal Wellbeing?
7. WEAVING EMPOWERING LEARNING ECOSYSTEMS – How will systems change?
As a key step in our formation, we decided to weave a gathering of change leaders in Lyon, France, over 4 days, at the end of January, 2018.
To maximise our impact in Lyon, we organised our GCL gathering to dovetail with a Learning Festival and other public events across Lyon Metropole. These events engaged those who are concerned with the transformation of education: children, parents, educators, policy-makers and more.
This video from Andreas Schleicher is a great introduction.
Lyon Metropole committed to establishing a learning ecosystem prototype, adopting a collective impact approach across the region.

- Learn why we need a collaborative approach.

- Review the 10 school health components.
- Read about the model in the Journal of School Health.
- Learn about incorporating health and wellness into school improvement plans.
- Education transformation — consequences of main drivers that “won’t go away in next 20 years”: Digitalization; Turbulence; Need for transition towards sustainable civilization.
- The new curriculum — “classical” 21st-century competencies (e.g. 4C or “empathy”) are necessary but insufficient.
- Change of assessment model is critical because systems deliver things that are measured.
- To bring us into the new educational model (learning for life, learning for new knowledge-based economy, learning with digital platforms and “digital twins” etc.), “learner agency” becomes central.
- Educational ecosystems are “cities / communities that learn”, as a variety of interconnected learning spaces and experiences beyond existing educational institutions. Ecosystems increase personal, collective and communal value of learning in complex society.
- New models of governance suitable for complex society. Replacing “top-down” approach with “bottom-up” approach; Creating “loyalty to change”; Leveraging communities of innovation; Multi-stakeholder approach.By GELP & GEF
