OUR INNOVATIONS

The All Grow Association wants to bring systemic change in Romania by developing social innovations.

METHOD

CHANGE ARCHITECTS

The Change Architects method is based on the Design Thinking and Maker Education methods and promotes social entrepreneurship and community development. The combination of these elements in the Romanian educational context led to the emergence of the Change Architects method. Our method is developed over several iterations and is based on the principles of continuous and agile learning.
 
Our results include the achievement of social innovations developed by students and the facilitation of teachers with the support of mentors and capacity building at the teacher level and inclusion in a group of continuous innovation in education called innovative teachers .
