Ashoka Changemaker Summit 2024
September 5-7 > Hamburg, Germany
The Ashoka Changemaker Summit is Ashoka’s largest global gathering of changemakers.
Every year, we bring together our global community of changemakers: social entrepreneurs, young changemakers, and leaders from business, government, and philanthropy to explore the most pressing issues of our time and together build a society in which everyone can contribute, participate, and actively engage in social change for the good of all.
This next Changemaker Summit will be held on September 5-7th 2024, in partnership with the City of Hamburg in Germany.
The City of Hamburg is the perfect partner for the Ashoka Changemaker Summit 2024.
Over the past years, Hamburg has organized the needs of social entrepreneurs and the opportunities for social innovation into a citywide “Social Entrepreneurship Strategy”, backed by the government and over 100 organizations.
Together with Ashoka, Hamburg and many other partners in the city are committed to the goal of True Participation.
In the months leading up to the Summit, Ashoka is co-organizing a program in Hamburg that brings together Ashoka Fellows, young changemakers and youth activists, government officials, philanthropists, and business leaders to explore how true participation can power positive change in the city.
To increase our social cohesion and quality of life, everyone needs to be able to participate in the good of all. People affected by problems and injustices need to be part of the solutions, and need to know that they have the capacity to be part of the change.
