What are Changemakers?

Young Changemakers are young people who make a difference with their passion, ideas and determined actions, thus moving other (young) people. They inspire other youngsters with the way they initiate changes in their environment, tackle certain issues, create awareness, or just by making something beautiful.

In Europe there are hundreds of youngsters seriously engaged in developing and implementing their own projects. We call them Young Changemakers and their projects almost always have a social and / or cultural artistic slant. The common goal is to set a significant change in motion in their own environment. The projects therefore often have a local dimension, sometimes with national and / or international scope.

Young Changemakers projects have a lot in common. To achieve their goals they use imagery, dance, music, theatre, new media, ICT and / or other means of creative expression. Individually or in exciting fusions.
