What ways of thinking, skills, and attributes will enable this generation of students to flourish? 
Cambridge students already get an exceptional and deep education, kindled by some of the world's best minds. Skills and mindsets outside their academic subject deserve the same puposefulness and attention. 
Changemakers fosters four essential qualities: Responsibility, Resilience, Action & Enterprise, and Leadership.
