International Changemaker

Changemakerin kansainvälinen kokous 2011

Changemaker is an advocacy network for youth and young adults that strives for global justice.

Our activities target social structures that uphold or promote injustice. We offer concrete means to promote peace, human rights and environmental issues. We believe that we can make a difference in solving manmade problems.

Changemaker activity started in Norway in 1992. With the years the brilliant idea of creative and concrete advocacy performed by youth spread to many countries. Nowadays beside Norway, there are Changemaker networks in Finland, Iceland, Hungary, Kenya, Pakistan and the Netherlands. An urge to influence on global development issues and promotion for global justice unites all Changemaker networks.

International Meeting has developed International Guidelines for Changemaker to advice national networks. This document describes Changemaker organizationally and ideologically. It also defines some fundamental principles all actions should base on.
