The Unlonely Planet 2022: How Ashoka Fellows Accelerate an Everyone a Changemaker World

The Unlonely Planet 2022

Every three years, Ashoka conducts a study to understand how its Fellows are driving lasting social change. In 2021, we quantified how Ashoka Fellows shift mindsets, change policies, and activate others as changemakers.

A total of 817 Ashoka Fellows participated in the global survey and 32 Fellows participated in in-depth interviews. The methodology, analysis, and data collection have been co-led by a team from Tyresia, the Business School of Polytechnic of Milan and the Ashoka Impact and Evidence Team.

Here are some of the key findings of the 2021 survey of Ashoka Fellows, representing one of the largest studies of systems-changing social entrepreneurs globally.
