As we prepared for the school season this August, Actionnate focused on Education as part of the #2020TheGreatReset campaign. Schools across the world were making decisions that impacted students, parents, teachers, and staff for the coming school year and for years to come. This sparked conversations about education including student mental health and education deficits due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We highlighted some actionnaters creating positive and innovative change.
