Fully-funded Ashoka ChangemakerXchange Summit in Indonesia 2018

Deadline: March 31, 2018

Calling on young innovators with social impact in Asia! Applications are open for Ashoka ChangemakerXchange Summit in Indonesia 2018. The Ashoka Changemakerxchange is a global collaboration platform for the world’s top young social entrepreneurs. The summit will take place from Tuesday, 26 June 2018 evening until Sunday, 1 July 2018 morning and participants must be able to attend all days.

ChangemakerXchange brings together some of the world’s top social innovators, who have dedicated their lives to solving a social problem and have the skills and mindset to collaborate for collective impact.

ChangemakerXchange has no panels, no power-points, no guest speakers or site visits. We believe the magic comes through an open and flexible participant-led agenda which leverages the collective intelligence of the group. There is a strong emphasis both on maximizing social impact and on personal wellbeing.

The ChangemakerXchange platform is co-created by Ashoka and the Robert Bosch Stiftung.


ChangemakerXchange covers your travel costs to/from the summit location in Indonesia (city to be announced) as well as all conference costs for all four nights and five days (including hotel accommodation, inner city travel, food, entrance fees, etc.).
