Two children identify a problem within their community and go through the process of gathering research, joining organizations, using technology and creating a solution in order to make the world a better place. This A-Z guide provides learning experiences that help students gain the skills and knowledge to take sustained and meaningful action. It includes photocopiable extension activities and active links to free online resources such as: a complementary curriculum document, videos, eBooks, as well as a community of student change agents. These resources enable teachers to implement a comprehensive program that further explore the concepts within this book. Both book and resources were created as a result of a teacher-initiated action research project published in the IB Journal of Teaching Practice.

This book is fantastic! It really helps take teacher and students through the process of taking action and making a positive change in the world. I can not wait to read this to my students and help them choose something they are passionate about to take real action. I also want to share it with my niece and nephew so they can begin their journey into making a difference in our world! Excellent resource for any classroom, especially International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP) classrooms and teachers facilitating The PYP Exhibition. I really enjoyed the use of the IB Learner Profile attributes and the PYP attitudes throughout the book. Really well written! I can not wait for more from these authors! - KatrynaJ
