About the Project
ChangemakerXchange stands for an international exchange between young people who are working on innovative solutions for social, environmental, or societal problems in their immediate surroundings. During five-day interexchange meetings, the participants deepen their knowledge and further develop their initiatives and business models. They network, receive new incentives through the dialog with other participants and start new projects together. Particularly innovative project ideas receive financial and nonmaterial support following the summit. This program is open to social innovators between 18 and 30 years from Africa, Asia and Europe. Since 2012, 350 changemakers from 70 different countries have participated. Overall, 60 cooperation project have been accomplished successfully and reached more than 100,000 people with them. With an additional number of eight summits in 2017, the Changemaker network and its impact continues to grow. ChangemakerXchange is co-created by Ashoka and the Robert Bosch Stiftung.
