• Nordic Changemaker Map – Denmark

The initiative will result in a set of digital maps, trends-analysis and recommendations, and subsequently aims to have an event series that invites ecosystem actors to think, explore and act together to strengthen the fields of social entrepreneurship and changemaking in Denmark. 


​The map will focus on 3 categories of Changemakers:

  • Social entrepreneurs: change-agents who have set up a company or organization and whose mission is to solve a social problem in an innovative and entrepreneurial way.

  • Young Changemakers between the ages of 16 and 25 who have identified a societal challenge and taken action. The young changemaker enthusiastically engages more members of his/her community in the change.

  • Changemaker initiatives, for instance, a collaborative project between two or more organizations with the primary goal of societal impact.


​The Danish map will contribute to the Nordic-wide map, in which the regional trends, actors, needs and ideas will be compiled to a joint Nordic Changemaker Map.
