In October 2021, the Summit took place in Northern Sweden:​

  • 25 young Changemakers from Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden were elected through an invitation-only process.

  • During the Summit, the young changemakers were connected with decision makers, giving them the opportunity to interact and exchange ideas and develop their solutions further.  

The network members were elected based on the following criteria:   

  • A young person between age of 16-25  

  • A youth who has developed or been a key advocate to an idea connected to one or more of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and for the good of all  

  • A youth who has mobilized a team working towards a solution for societal impact (e.g., volunteers, partners, peers) 

  • A person who is open to co-operate and interested in being a member of a Nordic network 

A Change-Leader is someone who believes we can all bring about positive change and goes from idea to action in solving societal challenges, mobilizing others as well. We believe changemakers share these traits: 

  • Empathy  

  • Creativity 

  • Self-leadership and the power to inspire and lead others 

  • Critical thinking 

  • The ability to identify important social challenges and find solutions to them!
