Changemaker Education Track

This track will provide participants with opportunities to engage in deep dialogue in how we as trusted adults, teachers, program leaders, faculty, researchers, parents, siblings, extended family, and students can support the young people in our lives on their journey to become changemakers. The track will consist of three sessions dedicated to exploring the social impact and educational work that involves youth who, around the world, are taking the lead to innovate and solve real-life problems.

We invite Exchange participants from all disciplines to join us in exploring ways to create change at the personal, organizational and systemic levels in service of the rising movement of young changemakers around the world.
