Our lessons are free to all children.

With each €5 you donate, we can offer our project to another child (via webinars, online projects, etc.) Would you be willing to help us reach more children?

Our mission is to unleash the creativity of 1 million children, teaching them to become changemakers for a better future.

During a designathon workshop, children learn to design, prototype and present their solutions to the SDGs, and in doing so contribute and co-create a better world.

We are located in the Netherlands and work through a network of partners in 20 countries.

Our annual global event is hosted in 40 cities around the world.
