• Changemaker Forum, 4 & 5 June 2021

  • Call for More Changemakers in Society

  • Imagine what the world will be like when today’s 15 year...

  • Come Hang With Them 4th-5th June



It is clear we live in a world that drastically demands new solutions to pressing challenges and for changemakers who can find new ways to creatively adapt to the modern era. In today’s change-driven environment, nobody holds the complete solution. Everybody is a changemaker.  Therefore, it is essential for today’s youth to be equipped with the necessary tools to address challenges shared across the globe—from eliminating poverty to providing clean air and water to all.

The Changemaker Forum is a dynamic virtual environment that brings a community together to engage in inspiring conversations around the development and practice of key skills for success in a changemaker world.

Through a combination of crash courses, inspiring panels, and workshops, The Changemaker Forum will prepare today’s youth and allies for the challenges of tomorrow by providing them with opportunities to access collective intelligence, lead with humanity, and engage in rigorous, creative problem solving. Regardless of one’s skills, talents, and aspirations, these changemaking skills are fundamentally important for everyone to develop and master.

The Changemaking Skills

Changemaking is the superpower of the 21st century. We need it to improve prosperity, we need it to solve complex social problems, and we need it to be resilient in the wake of a pandemic – or whatever unexpected, tangled problem comes next. 

In these challenging times, we need to develop truly resilient societies while focusing on the qualities of individuals. We need empathy to recognize and understand the problems that others are facing. We need agency and the ability to self-organise to reorient our activities in this time of crisis and to help people in need.

We need the Changemaking Framework to operate in this ambiguous and ever changing world.


Conscious Empathy

The ability to be aware of and understand our own and others' feelings and perspectives, using that understanding to guide one's actions for the good of all.

Collective Teamwork

Collective Teamwork

The ability to contribute to and thrive in a fluid ecosystem of teams that mobilises around a problem or opportunity.

New Leadership

To succesfully lead in a complex environment, the core role of a leader shifts to nurturing an environment for changemakers to emerge and share leadership.

Creative Problem Solving

Practising Changemaking

The process of creating a novel solution to a social problem that is more effective, efficient, sustainable, than existing solutions. For which the value create accrues primarily to society as a whole.
