BlockChange is a cooperation. The following people and organisations are involved.
W.G. (Wim) Pelgrim MA – founder
Wim Pelgrim is a teacher of Dutch Language and Literature at the Dr.-Knippenbergcollege in Helmond (The Netherlands). He started BlockChange because he believes education can do better at motivating and developing students and society can do better when it becomes a true meritocracy.
