Project Report | Jan 30, 2024
Starting 2024 on a high note - January Update!

By Eric Ortega from Global Changemakers | Programs Manager


We want to thank you for your support throughout 2023 and now that a new year is starting we have really exciting news to share with you: Our grant cycle has reached its final selection process and we are proud to announce we will be supporting 20 new international projects focused on education. One of our core objectives is always to look for the intersectionality where changemakers can make a big impact. The  projects from this cycle are very diverse and they are tackling different problems such as menstrual health education, training young girls to program, supporting young film-makers and addressing climate change. As always you can learn more about these projects on our website


Now the really big news, we are thrilled to announce the LATAM Summit 2024, our flagship event for the first time in Spanish. We will be selecting 40 young changemakers from the LATAM region and bring them to our fully funded summit in Mexico. The selected changemakers will spend 5 days of connection, inspiration and training and will be eligible to obtain funding for their projects afterwards.

Papa John's X Global Changemakers


As part of a collaborative campaign between Papa John's, The Shaquille O’Neal Foundation and Global Changemakers we set out to find changemakers based in Germany with an impactful project and we are glad to announce the mission was a success. From October 24, 2023 until December 31, 2023, for every Shaq-a-Roni pizza in Germany 0.94 Euros were donated to foster Changemaking grants for german youth-led projects. After a tough selection process we are happy to welcome the projects Eco Champs from Johann Eickenbrock and Join our Fight: Wie können wir junge Klimaaktivisti uns international solidarisieren und vernetzen? from Johanna Zabel to our network.


New Podcast Season


The new season of the Young Changemakers Podcast is finally here and we have a new host! We are happy to let you know that Meigan Diaz, 2017 GCM Alumnus is joining us to host the new podcast season of the podcast where every Friday we will be diving into the inspiring stories of different changemakers across the world to learn more about their motivations, experiences and goals. For this season we are featuring some really relevant and pressing themes such as migration, food security and Mangroves (that are not mangos). There are already 7 episodes available on all streaming platforms.


New Year Resolutions - Project Management Grants


We want every young changemaker to achieve their goals for 2024 so to celebrate the start of the year we gave out over 50 scholarships for our Project Management Course to the young leaders with the most inspiring stories. Through an Instagram Campaign we invited our followers to share with us their resolutions and the impact they want to create in the world, each and every one of the changemakers that participated on this campaign received a full scholarship for our PMC course.
