Young people are the future leaders. As the world becomes ever more interconnected, they will have to act on global issues, being affected as much by events in faraway places as by what happens down the road. To meet the challenges of tomorrow, young people must be prepared to contribute to positive social change and strengthen civil society in this global environment.
A Global Changemaker is a young activist operating through a range of national and international networks, who is able to influence his or her community as well as speak to authority with confidence and passion. Changemakers are not afraid to challenge either accepted ways of thinking or their convictions. Changemakers are forward looking, they take their ideas and put them into practice. A Changemaker accepts difference, is flexible, is able to take on new ideas and skills and will communicate them to others. Are you a Changemaker?
