Ashoka Changemaker Summit 2024

The Ashoka Changemaker Summit is Ashoka’s largest global gathering of changemakers.

Every year, we bring together our global community of changemakers: social entrepreneurs, young changemakers, and leaders from business, government, and philanthropy to explore the most pressing issues of our time and together build a society in which everyone can contribute, participate, and actively engage in social change for the good of all.

This next Changemaker Summit will be held on September 5-7th 2024, in partnership with the City of Hamburg in Germany.

How can we create a world in which everyone feels invited and capable of contributing to change?Leveraging the power of changemakers, our goal is to celebrate our vision for a society in which every person feels invited and capable to contribute. We should expect no less from all actors in society, government and business. Join us on a transformative journey and help us empower everyone to create a more inclusive, sustainable future. The sixth edition of the Ashoka Changemaker Summit will be held in Hamburg, Germany. We will host 450 of the world’s leading social entrepreneurs, thought leaders, philanthropists, young changemakers, and impact investors on a campus at the heart of Hamburg’s iconic “Planten on Blomen” park.  The Summit will offer conversations and experiences that will challenge prevailing preconceptions about who can contribute to real change. And it will provide new answers, showcasing the work of leading social innovators who are already building a future in which truly everyone can be a part of creating solutions.

The City of Hamburg is the perfect partner for the Ashoka Changemaker Summit 2024.

Over the past years, Hamburg has organized the needs of social entrepreneurs and the opportunities for social innovation into a citywide “Social Entrepreneurship Strategy”, backed by the government and over 100 organizations.
Together with Ashoka, Hamburg and many other partners in the city are committed to the goal of True Participation.

In the months leading up to the Summit, Ashoka is co-organizing a program in Hamburg that brings together Ashoka Fellows, young changemakers and youth activists, government officials, philanthropists, and business leaders to explore how true participation can power positive change in the city.

Location: Hamburg, Germany
