The Norwegian map contributes to the Nordic-wide map, in which the regional trends, actors, needs and ideas have been compiled to a joint Nordic Changemaker Map.
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 Norway.
In Phase 1, the Norwegian map sets out to interview 40 social entrepreneurs, young Changemakers and joint initiatives, as well as collected the work and experiences of additional 120 Norwegian Changemakers.
