Besides being a global community of changemakers, we also are a laboratory for innovative and participatory facilitation methodologies and practices. Over the years we have built a global group of 65 impact-focused facilitators, all recruited from the ChangemakerXchange community, who are both changemakers and skilled facilitators. Trained in offline and online facilitation and based in cities around the world they’re ready to facilitate anything from 2-hour digital conversations to five-day retreats.
Though not limited to these, their key area of expertise is in creating deeper human connection, fostering wellbeing and enabling peer to peer learning and tangible collaborations.
What we value most in facilitation
All the ChangemakerXchange facilitators are changemakers with their own ventures at the same time. They are living the experience of creating positive social change, which equips them extra well for supporting others in their journey.
We are facilitators rather than trainers. We consider our main role to leverage the collective intelligence of the group and to create safe and empowering spaces to human creativity to thrive.
We design accessible and inclusive agendas for all learning styles (logical, kinesthetic, verbal, aural, visual) and character types (intra and inter-personal).
