In brief

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 Europe, MENA, Asien und Africa. Since 2012, 370 changemakers from 78 different countries have participated. Overall, 150 cooperation project have been accomplished successfully and reached more than 100,000 people with them. With an additional 13 summits in 2018, the Changemaker network and its impact continues to grow. ChangemakerXchange is co-created by Ashoka and the Robert Bosch Stiftung.
