Creating Systems - Creativity Matters Report Series

Children need creative skills to thrive. But our education systems don’t always leave room for creativity. How can we change that? We asked the policymakers who are already working on it.

All around the world, policymakers are looking at how to make learning more creative. So we spoke to five of them: from Australia, Japan, Scotland, Thailand, and Wales. In this report, we find out how they reshaped their systems to put creative play at the heart of the school curriculum.

Hear directly from them in this short video, read the key lessons, and download the report in full below.
