Become a changemaker


You want to make a difference but don't know where to start? You might already have an idea but lack the confidence or team to implement it? Or even better, you got no ideas and would like to come up with your own and/or connect with fresh ideas from other youth? Then our imp!act training is for you:

At imp!act, you get together with 20-40 enthusiastic young people from all over Europe. After some crazy brainstorming and team building, you develop your own social or environmental project and set out to test it right away. You also have the chance to get feedback by renowned experts - all of that within only 3.5 days! Because talking about the world's problems won't solve them – but your project might. (To see what kind of projects came out of imp!act in the past, click here.)

imp!act - for you?

imp!act - for you?


  • Hearing about famine in a world of overconsumption, reading racist headlines or simply seeing someone throw a PET bottle into a regular garbage bin leaves you far from indifferent?
  • Are you growing tired of hearing the same false promises or fatalistic speeches (a.k.a. “It’s all structural, we can’t do anything”) over and over again?
  • Do you sometimes find yourself brainstorming about how to save the world with your buddies at the bar on a Friday evening? Even if you might not remember all the "brilliant" ideas when you wake up on Saturday ;)
  • Are you between 18 to 30 (+/-) years old?

Then imp!act is for you! You don't need to be an exceptionally brainy graduate from Harvard to become a changemaker; things can be changed at a local level, with a bit of motivation, creativity and love.

 

Not convinced yet? Here are our top 3 reasons to participate:

  • Get the boost and tools to turn your ideas into action: Practise professional & personal skills that will serve you throughout your life. Learn how to capture an audience with your presentations, how to manage a project from the first idea to its implementation, how to convince people or sponsors to join your project, etc.
  • Meet renowned experts from business, social enterprises and NGOs. Join a community of highly-motivated young changemakers that will bring you a broad network.
  • Finally, don’t underestimate the positive energy released once you start following a secret passion or simply use your creativity to make things move. You’ll work hard, but - promised - there will be enough time left for fun!

What happens at imp!act?


Day 1 - find inspiration

Meet the "changemakers", i.e. young people who have found a way to tackle global challenges in your city or have started their own projects. Then, you already start discussing and exchanging ideas with all participants.

Day 2 - release your creativity

Brainstorm your interests, passions, strengths and transform them into project ideas. Pitch your new ideas, find a team and start realizing the projects right away.

Day 3 - Challenge your new ideas

With your new team, you set out to test your ideas right away, for example by organizing a first short and spontaneous campaign, by interviewing passersby or by meeting potential partners.

Day 4 - Make your project Take off

Get feedback by experts and finalize your project. In the afternoon, you will pitch this very project to a jury who will councel you on how to continue after imp!act - if you wish to do so. Finally, it's time to celebrate all those achievements!
