ChangemakerXchange envisions a world where everyone is part of inclusive communities in which people connect deeply and co-create positive action to serve the wellbeing of people and planet.
We're on a mission to provide safe, supportive, fun, and empowering spaces for changemakers. We foster profound and lasting connections, nurture wellbeing, and enable peer-learning and meaningful collaborations so that changemakers may create, sustain and scale positive change.
To fulfill our mission
we currently run activities
across three key pillars
Through the ChangemakerXchange Community we reach and work directly with ± 1000 changemakers across 130 countries globally. New members join via our flagship summits, a unique experience of connecting, co-learning and collaboration with other social innovators from around the world. This is followed by ongoing, and life-long, community engagement, capacity building and support for their work.
Through our Facilitators for Change program we trained over 60 members of the community to be world-class facilitators. They now facilitate our summits and accompany other networks of changemakers in their work. Building on our learnings from working with hundreds of social innovators we also trained over 150 civil society leaders in the facilitation skills needed to create spaces for collective impact.
Through The Possibilists we work towards aligning the support ecosystem around a shared understanding of the needs and challenges of young changemakers and to create the best possible conditions for them to thrive and to deepen or scale their impact.
All of our summits are hosted and facilitated by community members themselves and we have a Global Facilitation Pool comprising 60+ facilitators who we also connect to other gatherings in the sector.
Over the last decade of facilitating impact-focused gatherings we have developed a wealth of knowledge and detailed toolkits. Reach out to us, if we can support you design and execute a high impact gathering.
Our values and purpose statements were co-created with our whole community.
Where others see competition, we see collaboration. We align our goals and share resources to build on each other’s impact and catalyse systemic change.
We trust each other with our opinions and feelings, and we sometimes tell the untold about changemaking. We know that what we share with the community stays there.
We share thoughts and emotions fearlessly and welcome our differences wholeheartedly. We can be our real, vulnerable selves.
We actively care for our own wellbeing and are there for those around us. We care for their wellbeing and try to help out whenever we can.
We recognise the importance of creativity and fun to ignite positive change through the work we carry out.
We host unique, intensive and intimate 4-day “unconference” gatherings in nature, focused on human connection, peer learning, wellbeing and collaboration.
Participants then become part of a global community of 800+ like-minded souls, who learn and share together.
We empower the community with tools and knowledge on system change, wellbeing and impact orientation through a hybrid combination of physical and virtual gatherings.
We give funds and guidance for the community to develop high impact cross-border collaborations which deepen the impact of their initiatives and spread the spirit of changemaking far and wide.
We implement a decentralised, non-hierarchical organisational model in which the community of young people have a say in all strategic decisions of the organisation.
