Why we focus on education
Driven by a desire to have a global impact and tackle a root-cause issue, the Atlassian Foundation focuses on maximising our impact through education.
Education is the most empowering force in the world. It creates knowledge, builds confidence, and breaks down barriers to opportunity. It is key to breaking cycles of poverty and disadvantage.
However, if current trends continue, by 2030 over half of the world’s 1.6 billion young people will lack the skills necessary to work and thrive in the 21st century.
This is why we’re passionate about education at scale. We bring the best of Atlassian - funding, people, products & practices - to unleash the potential of the world’s most impactful education changemakers.
