What is Build the Change?

Build the Change is a powerful way for children to express their hopes and dreams for the future with LEGO® bricks and other creative materials, plus their own imagination. And it’s all done via Learning through Play!

We’re on a mission to give children a voice and use their ideas and visions to inspire leaders around the world, so start here and join us…by joining our challenges!

And don’t forget to check out our gallery of ideas from around the world!

Children Call for Action on Climate Change

Via Build the Change more than 6,000 children contributed to the voices of “Building Instructions for a Better World” that the LEGO Group shared with policy makers at COP26 in Glasgow in 2021, reminding the world’s leaders that “The power may be yours, but the future is ours. Please act. Please involve us.”
