Applications now open for fully funded 2020 Young Global Changers Program in Berlin. The Young Global Changers program brings together young people from around the world. Especially, those who are working towards a global paradigm shift, combining their talents and becoming a strong voice for change. Successful applicants will receive a full scholarship to participate in the Global Solutions Summer School. On top of that, they will also receive the full scholarship to the Global Solutions Summit from April 17-22, 2020 in Berlin, Germany.

People are currently witnessing a trend in many advanced and emerging economies where economic prosperity is increasingly becoming decoupled from social prosperity and environmental sustainability. There is an urgent need for a global paradigm change to recouple the economy with social and ecological needs, and to reverse the growing global inequality.

If you share our concern about the current global situation; if you are already engaged in a project or initiative to bring about positive change or if you would like to participate in a comprehensive summer school and attend the Global Solutions Summit in Berlin and if you would like to contribute as a member of an active global community of change-makers – then apply to the Young Global Changers program by December 1, 2019.
