Changemakers meet in Tartu.

10 year anniversary  |  June 7-92019

Changemakers Summit is a place to meet likeminded people who are trying to change the world for the better. These three days are meant to inspire and to help you learn from the best practices and find fellow changemakers to work together with.

INSPIRATION

We know how hard it is to change things. It’s difficult to keep yourself inspired while working for the same cause for many years. And yet we know that only long-term efforts will have a meaningful impact. So our main goal is to give you the motivational boost you need to carry on with your mission.

COMMUNITY

We also know, that being a leader is a lonely endeavour. Changemakers Summit is THE place to meet other doers and shapers, to learn from and to find support from them. We aim to create meaningful connections and friendships between people with important missions in their lives.

BEST PRACTICES

This is also a place to learn. From the best in their field, whatever that field might be, for we aim to find the widest selection of speakers and trainers that is humanly possible – entrepreneurs, NGO leaders, politicians, artists, journalists and so on.

MEANINGFUL FUN

Every night we celebrate. We have deep discussions, we dance our worries away and look at the night sky in awe. The whole city becomes our playground. This is where we charge our batteries to last for a year and create memories to last a lifetime.
