The world has always known change, but the change we see today is transforming the way we live, work, and interact at a rate and scale never seen before. Technologies have lowered barriers to participation so that everyone can contribute and act collectively more than ever before. As a result, we are living in a truly historic moment where anyone can create positive change.

Our vision and understanding of the world comes from Ashoka’s experience in pioneering the field of social entrepreneurship over the last 35 years— finding, selecting, and supporting the world’s leading social entrepreneurs (Ashoka Fellows). The network of more than 3,500 Ashoka Fellows is implementing system-changing solutions to human and environmental problems in over 90 countries. Now is the moment to ensure that everyone knows they can change the world for the better, and does so. We want to live in a world where every young person grows up to become an adult changemaker, capable of taking creative action to solve a social problem; a world where the development of young changemakers and the practice of changemaking are the norm.

Our work with Ashoka Fellows helps us see patterns of social development across various fields, providing key levers and a new framework for living in the world as a changemaker. We help people see the world differently so they can do differently, fully participating in the new environment. For example, Ashoka is building and activating networks to create fundamental changes in the growing up experience of children and young people so that everyone can become a changemaker.

Over the last 20 years, Ashoka Poland has been building a network of leading Polish social innovators. Ashoka's office in Poland was founded in 1995 and was the first Ashoka branch in Europe! Over 75 Ashoka Fellows have been selected from Poland; each of them are creating systemic change in areas from homelessness to climate change to technology. Ashoka Poland aims to build a dramatically different Europe - where solutions outrun problems, where everyone is a changemaker.

Journey to Changemaker Certificate

The Journey to Changemaker Certificate (J2CC) is an internationally-recognized program executed by Ashoka. The main goal of the certificate is to support the creation of an academic program which supports the changemaker skills needed for the XXI century. These “changemaking skills” are highlighted by the OECD and Davos as necessary to succeed in the future. For this reason, the J2CC is dynamic and future-oriented.

Seminarium: Zmień Ja/My Polskę

For 37 years, Ashoka has been looking for social innovators to support them financially and substantively. There are more than 3,300 Ashoka Fellows around the world, and each of them has an idea which has the potential to solve large-scale social problems. For years, we have been observing how Ashoka Fellows are struggling with barriers to the development of social innovations. What can be done to counteract these barriers? What are these barriers? As Ashoka, we are entering this discussion along with the creators of this ecosystem which support social innovation.

Repairing with Veolia

The project "Repairing with Veolia" is focused on supporting leaders of local "repair cafes" that are innovative initiatives in Poland which promote the idea of a circular economy and which will create new ideas regarding reuse. 10 leaders will be selected and will receive financial support to help them with their innovation projects. Leaders will be effective and local, demonstrating great care for the ecological and social aspects of the aims of repair cafes. By giving them professional support, we will empower these leaders with the tools and guidance to broaden their impact and make their initiatives self-sustainable. Furthermore, we will promote their solutions throughout the broader public to encourage other communities to create space for their own repairing initiatives.
