Applications are now open for the global Engagement Summit 2020 for Young Changemakers. The Global Engagement Summit (GES) empowers young changemakers to produce responsible and sustainable solutions to shared global problems.

The Summit is a week-long conference every April at Northwestern University. Delegates from around the world arrive with change-based projects that can tackle any social change. Further,  from education to healthcare to sustainability. If their project is in the ideas phase, they are to make their plan a reality. If it’s already up and coming, they are to become more impactful.

Moreover, Delegates leave the Summit with tangible skills and newly learned strategies to improve their project. Also, create change in the most effective way possible. Past projects include a creative arts education center in Cambodia, a marketing NGO for small businesses in Egypt and an organization that connects local food pantries with college dining halls to minimize food waste in the U.S.

The Summit offers a wide variety of capacity-building programs ranging from hands-on workshops to individualized mentoring sessions. Because projects brought to GES can be anywhere in the development process and also, tackle a host of different types of social challenges, Summit programming is customizable to each delegate. Once accepted, delegates will apply for and be placed in workshops relevant to their specific project and the goals they wish to accomplish.


  • GES has a registration fee of $75 that covers food daily breakfast, lunch, and some dinners. Delegates stay for free in homestays with GES student staff members. Further, travel to and from a home country or U.S. state of residence is by the delegate. All personal costs including some dinners and public transportation costs will be incurred by the delegate.
  • Likewise, Financial aid is available and will be on a case by case basis to cover some/all of the cost of the summit and travel expenses. Once delegates are in the chosen list, they will be sent a financial aid application. However, accepted delegates are encouraged to seek funding from their own universities first.


  • Open to young changemakers from around the world with change-based projects that can tackle any social change from education to healthcare to sustainability.
