The Young Global Changers program identifies, connects and empowers young people from around the globe engaged in different areas of society who are already actively pushing for change in their communities, enabling them to have an even greater impact. Each year, after an extensive application and selection process, a new cohort of Young Global Changers from around the world joins the Young Global Changers program. They join a global network of changemakers to connect and advance the Recoupling of the economy with social prosperity and environmental sustainability.

The goal is to build a sustainable network of engaged individuals and together advance the project of recoupling economic advancements with social prosperity and environmental sustainability.
