We want to change the world for our children by redesigning the future of education. We've begun by empowering teachers and communities in Colombia with Self-Organized Learning Environments (SOLE) - a disruptive methodology invented by TED Prize Sugata Mitra - which sparks autonomy, collaboration, critical thinking and solves real-life problems using Internet. In 5 years we've given 418,000+ people access to resources to help them participate more fully in Colombian society. 43.5 million to go!
The recent backslide in Colombia's Peace Process has highlighted the fact that independent civil education organisations like SOLE Colombia are required to keep dialogue and development between Colombians going in the absence of formal structures to do so. This can be seen in the over 7000 public digital kiosks that have been shut down, the reduction in goventment spending on education and culture, the rearming of FARC disidents and the stagnation of Colombia's economy.
Contributing to democratically oriented civil society can be achieved through support of SOLE Colombia. We've been at it for 5 years and given over 417,000 people access to resources to help them participate more fully in Colombian society. Resources like 21st-century skills, local and global interconnections, technological fluency, opportunities for participation, innovative solutions for local and global challenges, visibility and life-long learning.
We are going to change and regenerate the society and the land who will TOGETHER be responsible for our children's and planet's future.
