About the Project

Inventors4Change wants to provide children with tools, techniques and knowledge that let them invent the changes they want to see in the world. It consists of a network of schools and organizations which use Technologies for Creative Learning and Digital Media tools to foster Invention-Based Collaborative Learning among children from different countries. The project is particularly focused on children from underserved communities and children’s inventions are inspired by Sustainable Development challenges.

Inventors4Change promotes Invention-Based Collaborative Learning among teams comprising children from different countries. We launch online challenges related to sustainable development issues (human rights, poverty, gender, equality, global warming, etc.) and children express, build and share their own inventions and solutions using digital tools and the Internet. The idea is to encourage children to do “work that matters” and learn to express themselves creatively and critically by using new technologies. A part of the online project, we also conduct field training in schools. Our team has traveled to India several times to train teachers and conduct workshops with children.
