Who are the Young Global Changers? What are we aiming for? Learn more about how the Young Global Changers program was initiated and what it is all about here.

To recognize and reward young changemakers from all over the world, the Global Solutions Initiative has created the “Young Global Changers Recoupling Awards” in 2022. Learn more about this years awards here.

Each year outstanding individuals are selected to become part of the Young Global Changers network. Learn more about the YGC Ambassadors, this year´s participants and precious cohorts.

The Young Global Changers apply for the program with their projects and initiatives that are pushing for change. Find out more about the project and follow the link!

Each year, young changemakers from academica, business and civil society are selected to participate in the Global Solutions Summer School. Learn more about past summer schools and the Intersecting Winter School here.

Each year a group of Young Global Changers is selected as Ambassadors for the program. They serve as facilitators for the activities of the community, as mentors to new members, and as representatives of the Young Global Changers community.

The young changemakers continue to work together in different fields of priorities – not only during their time as a YGC, but beyond. The resulting initiatives work towards the Recoupling of economic, political, environmental and social domains.

The YGC Blog serves as a platform for the Young Global Changers as well as the Extended Circle to publish articles, policy briefs and more on current initiatives or to exchange different perspectives on topics of interests.

We are building an extended network and welcome individuals who are engaged to bring about positive change. Learn about activities of the Young Global Changers and about how you can get engaged as part of our extended circle.
