Ashoka's Young Changemakers 2023
Ashoka Nordic’s Young Changemaker of the Year Award highlights young changemakers and their ability to bring about positive societal change. The award is geared towards youth based in Finland who are not only committed to creating an initiative for their community, but also display leadership, empathy, creativity, and the critical thinking skills necessary to identify a problem and propose a solution to it.
The purpose of this recognition is to empower, inspire and support youth in their journey to launch and lead positive impact in the society. For the 2023 edition, two young changemakers and/or groups will be elected.
For 2022's edition, two young Changemakers were elected: Benjamin Pitkänen, co-founder of Viral Vegans, and Salaado Qasim, co-founder of the Peace and Well-being organization, RAHY. You can learn more about the award in this video.
