What lessons can others learn from your project? (max. 1500 characters): 

Engaging young people in project work is not a new phenomenon. Traditionally, however, a youth project has been one that is conceived (and typically implemented) by adults on behalf of young beneficiaries. The Global Changemakers approach enabling young people to develop their own strategies for issues that they care about has proven to be highly effective.
Once selected and trained, the Global Changemakers are allowed to apply for funds to start up their own initiatives. So far we have supported 280 projects world-wide. Most of the members of our network, have however initiated projects of their own, finding funding from different sources, but supported and mentored by the Global Changemakers network and partners.
After the event has taken place, we will open a call for applications for projects from participants to propose initiatives to bring about positive changes in their communities. The projects will be conducted by the Changemakers but mentoring and follow up from the core team and partners will be provided.
