"Be the change you want to see in the world" - Mahatma Gandi

HOW DO YOU WANT TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE WORLD?

Changemaker Summer will bring together 10 changemakers from around the world in Sherbrooke, Canada, where they will develop world-changing lifestyles and social impact projects as leaders, learners, teachers, coaches, and mentors to one another between July 4th and August 2nd, 2018.
 

 

Empowering people to live fulfilling lives by contributing to the world!
 

We believe in everyone’s ability to make positive social changes.
By collecting innovative practices from institutions around the world including UPEACE Costa Rica (UN mandated university), ImaginEX Japan, Stanford Design School, and Watson University, we developed a curriculum that equips aspiring changemakers with the tools, skills, and mindset needed to work with just about anybody, anywhere, anytime, on any world-changing project.

OUR CHANGEMAKER EDUCATION

1. Expose

To feed your will to contribute to the world!

We expose changemakers to the world’s inequalities and challenges, to inspiring guest speakers who took action, and to experiences that will give them a sense of fulfillment. Exposure is often key in sparking one’s desire to contribute to the world as well as to find one’s own calling.

2. Equip

With the skills and mindset needed for any project.

We offer workshops that will help changemakers achieve their goals whether they plan to be a doctor, a musician, or a historian. Workshops will include learning to learn, facilitation skills, self-awareness, storytelling, marketing, systems thinking, networking, empathy and design thinking, finance & fundraising, resiliency, failing, decision making, life coaching, self-care, and ethnographic work.

3. Triangulate

To find how YOU will contribute to the world?

We help changemakers create lifestyles and projects that triangulate what they love doing, their strengths, and what they care about in the world. We believe that to have a lasting social impact, you need to enjoy your daily life.

4. Experience

To find who you want to impact.

Making change often starts by influencing others, not only we believe its important for changemakers to learn to teach, we give them an opportunity to work with different demographics (youth, elders, special need, etc...) to help them find what’s right for them.

5. Reflect

To realign your actions and values.

Sometimes we are too busy to reflect and ask ourselves what we are doing right, what we are doing wrong, and what we could do better. We set time on a regular basis to reflect, and will do a week-long nature retreat to reflect on personal growth, on group goals, and gather feedback to help us rethink education.

6. Plan & Launch

To make your projects come true. 

Inspired by the best practices of social entrepreneurship bootcamp, (Design Thinking, Lean Design, Abundant Cycle, and many more),  we support changemakers in making a personal action plan that will leave them more prepared than ever for their future.

Are you ready for  the

SUMMER OF YOUR LIFE?

 

 

We will learn as much as we can,

& will have as much fun as we can!
