What is Build the Change?

Build the Change is all about giving children a voice and allowing them to express their hopes and ideas for a better future.

Children use their creativity to solve real-world challenges with LEGO® bricks and other creative materials – and it is all achieved via learning through play.

We are on a mission to make children heard and use their ideas and visions to inspire real meaningful change.
