The GCL’s Theory of Change is closely related with the visions advocated by GCL partners:
The Global Change Leaders (GCL) is a learning
community for people who are weaving learning
ecosystems that empower everyone to live for a
better world. Living for a better world is synonymous
with being a changemaker, and involves becoming
equipped and inclined to act for the common good.

A Collaborative Approach to Learning and Health. ASCD’s Whole Child approach is an effort to transition from a focus on narrowly defined academic achievement to one that promotes the long-term development and success of all children. We help educators, families, community members, and policymakers move from a vision about educating the whole child to sustainable, collaborative action.

The Brookings Institution is a nonprofit public policy organization conducting in-depth research that leads to new ideas for solving problems facing society.
- 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
