Hear from social innovators

  • Our work with ChangeX has significantly influenced our thinking as an organization, reminding us that we are not married to one single way of replicating. We care about quality and impact.

  • Through Change X, communities have been able to create their own versions of Playing with Trust, to address the particular divisions faced in each of their neighbourhoods. People we never had any contact before have been able to discover this innovation, reflect on the societies they live in, and experiment with new ways of relating to each other.
