Alex works alongside a brilliant team of young people and Big Change colleagues to help explore how best we can build an education system with youth agency at its core.
Alex has over 15 years’ experience in child rights and protection, working across philanthropic, public, private and charity sectors. He is experienced in designing and leading a range of complex programmes aimed at preventing, recognising and responding to harm that children and their families face. He is a strong advocate of locally-led development, ensuring that children, and the communities they live in, are given a voice and can influence decisions that affect them. Most recently, Alex was Deputy Chief Executive at Lumos Foundation, responsible for overseeing global advocacy, research, training, and programmes.When he’s not working (though often when he’s trying to work) he does his best to keep up with his two young boys.
