Co-created by Ashoka and Robert Bosch Stiftung, ChangemakerXchange is a global collaborative community for young changemakers to connect, share and develop cross-border collaborations.
ChangemakerXchange will bring this group together in a unique collaborative summit format close to Addis Ababa from May 9th-13th, after which they will get the chance to become part of a global community of innovators. The summit will be followed by an accelerator program for this group to advance their impact to the next level, diving deeper into issues like system change, fundraising, holistic well-being and stakeholder engagement.
ETHIOPIA, Addis Ababa
13th – 19th May
Burundi, Dem Rep Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Somalia, South Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda. We will also have a limited number of places available for Changemakers outside of the region but they will then have to organise and cover their own flight costs.
Logisitics and Cost
ChangemakerXchange covers your travel costs to/from the venue as well as all of the conference costs for all four nights and five days (including hotel accommodation, inner city travel, food, entrance fees, etc.). However we expect you to cover your own visas, local travel to airport in your own country and from the airport to the venue in the host country (in very limited cases we may be able to support with some of these costs, please reach out to us). We also request a small application contribution of 15 USD (making exceptions for those who are unable to contribute) to cover our costs of thoroughly reviewing a large number of applications.
13th – 19th May
