What we do
The LEGO Foundation aims to build a future in which learning through play empowers children to become creative, engaged, lifelong learners. Read about our different programmes, projects we support, our research agenda and more in this section.
Programmes and projects
We have established three programmes which work to ensure learning through play empowers children to become creative, engaged, lifelong learners. Read more about the projects and activities that fall under each programme.
** In our Focus Geographies programme we work in Denmark, Mexico, South Africa and Ukraine which are geographes that all experience different challenges in achieving quality learning and academic results.
There is often a lack of holistic thinking and co-operation across the learning ecosystem and little recognition of the possibility of using learning through play as a driver to empower creative, engaged lifelong learners.
We drive a holistic change agenda that target the full ecosystem to create commitment, collaboration and motivation to create the best learning environments for children up to the age of twelve.
In the first few years of life, more than 1 million new neural connections form every second.
Our focus areas within this programme are to:
Develop best practices for cross-sector dialogue and collaboration through new models for partnerships
Create commitment and engagement from all local stakeholders into the learning through play agenda
Advocate for and work towards the inclusion of learning through play in all learning environments around the child, to illustrate the synergetic effect on each child's development towards becoming a creative, engaged lifelong learner
