The mission of MakeKnowledge is to create ecosystems of opportunity in education.

We are an innovation catalyst in and for education. We innovate so that education can serve its highest goals: building a thriving public, and raising up creative and caring citizens and changemakers, in an emerging world that is changing at a bewildering speed.

This approach requires an ecosystem approach, understanding the varied and fractured landscape of education, and understanding the opportunities and constraints when working at various scales. It also requires a deeply skilled innovation practice.

Our current work is in several rich areas which match some of the biggest challenges we have on the planet, inequality, climate change, and the future of work.

Our Future of Work and Education work launched with our international conference in February 2020. Check out some of the videos from that event here.

The STEM++ work aims to radically increase the number of underrepresented students who persist along STEM pathways from childhood to career.  Learn more at stemplusplus.org.

Our Global Climate Changemakers work shares some of the important DNA of our STEM++ work, namely that we need everyone to be empowered as STEM learners to create new interdisciplinary solutions for climate resilience. It also recognizes that schools can be engines of innovation in their communities, working with local and international partners to build opportunity and resilience.
