By gathering international young social innovators for a week in Sweden we not only want to strengthen them, but also spread the message of youth as a big resource for positive social change
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
As our world becomes faster and more complex, it is absolutely critical for any institution to maximize its percentage of changemakers- people who are willing to create change and who are seeking for bottom-up solutions.
How will this project solve this problem?
By gathering outstanding young European changemakers in an Academy in the summer 2008, we will spearhead a network of young leaders who will then inspire as many young people as possible to take action
Potential Long Term Impact
A global community that is able to respond quickly and effectively to social challenges anywhere. Everyone would have the freedom, confidence and societal support to address any social need in an everyone a changemaker world.
