HundrED Announces List of the Most Inspiring K12 Innovations from Around the World

HundrED, a Finnish education nonprofit, announced its Global Collection 2019, the 2nd annual list of 100 inspiring K12 education innovations taking place around the world and representing 36 countries. 

Innovations were nominated over the course of the last year, and were required to adhere to strict search criteria, such as innovativeness, impact and scalability. HundrED utilized scales to compare factors within this criteria such as: human centeredness, mastery of learning and cost effectiveness. Additionally, HundrED analyzed each submission to identify how they addressed an existing problem from a new perspective, measured impact, and evaluated the potential for scale. Then the list was reviewed and vetted through HundrED’s Academy, a multi-stakeholder advisory board to provide feedback from 100 members in 28 countries.

To help localized innovations reach their full potential for scale and impact, HundrED identifies and promotes 100 organizations from around the globe that are supporting both incremental and transformational changes in education. The Global Collection 2019 is comprised of nonprofits, for-profits both small and large, and individual projects that have been shown to have marked benefits to learning outcomes, student motivation, efficiency and interpersonal skills.

Key attributes of the selected innovations include:

This year, HundrED also recognized an Innovator of the Year, celebrating Kehkashan Basu, Founder of the Green Hope Foundation,  a youth organization working on Education for Sustainable Development, children's rights and environmental protection. She was selected for not only her outstanding ability to make waves of impact in the worlds of both sustainability and education at scale, but also for doing so all under the age of 18 years.

The HundrED Global Collection 2019 list is available at, and includes step-by-step instructions on how to implement these innovations on a local level, and 24/7 support for educators worldwide, for free.
