Alison is a creative communications expert with a specific focus on children and education. She worked extensively with some of the world’s most recognized brands (PepsiCo, Unilever, Nestlé) before partnering in the creation of a children’s learning program—Oddizzi.com—to help children in schools know and understand the world they live in and connect with one another. Oddizzi.com now connects over 100,000 primary aged children across the world with one another.
In 2014, Alison joined Project Everyone to develop the World’s Largest Lesson as part of the awareness building campaign for the Sustainable Development Goals. The World’s Largest Lesson aims to create a generation of Global Goals “champions” determined to see The Goals achieved.
The first World’s Largest Lesson took place at the end of September 2015. Materials were shared enthusiastically in 160 countries with the help of a unique network of partners made up of ministries of education, UN agencies, civil society, and the private sector.
