Dear Baden-Württemberg residents,

Mindchangers is the new project of the Baden-Württemberg Development Cooperation Foundation (SEZ) and the Baden-Württemberg State Ministry and is financed with funds from the European Union.

As a representative for BW, we are part of an international team and together with five other European regions we would like to promote young commitment and face our current challenges together with you.

  • Are you committed to climate justice, the dismantling of colonial structures and/or fighting for more diversity in our society?
  • Maybe your organization already has exciting project ideas and you would like to exchange ideas with like-minded people?
  • Do you want to make a difference and are you campaigning for more justice on social media or would you like to start now?

Then you are exactly Mindchangers!

Mindchangers thrives on encounters, exchanges and shared goals. We therefore warmly invite you to our current events. Our next event is already being planned. You will soon find all the information about it here.

We look forward to seeing you!

MINDCHANGERS Future Impact Summit 2023 – directing global change

Mindchangers Future Impact Summit - directing global change, September 26th, 2023

Tuesday, September 26, 2023, 14:00 p.m. - 18:00 p.m., Sparkassenakademie Stuttgart

Are you committed to global justice and living sustainability? Do you want to exchange ideas and network internationally with other young people?
At the “Mindchangers Future Impact Summit – directing global change” you will meet other global impact makers!

The resulting impulses will be discussed and viewed from different perspectives at the Mindchangers Future Impact Summit with Rudi Hoogvliet, the State Secretary for Development Policy, representatives from politics, municipalities, NGOs and science as well as young committed people from Argentina, Kenya, Uganda, Indonesia and Baden-Württemberg . The discourses from the summit then flow into the “Mindchangers Youth Declaration“, which is developed during the International Youth Meeting and whose results serve as an impulse and demand for the EU and the respective regional ones
passed on to political and civil society networks.

With art performance, international keynote speakers, and input from young people from the Mindchangers projects in all partner regions, we show young commitment in all its forms and colors at the Mindchangers Future Impact Summit. In the active phase, the solutions to the 2030 Agenda will be developed as impulses from the Mindchangers Youth Declaration at roundtables together with political hosts, experts and EU stakeholders and your suggestions for the impulses will be included. At our Gallery of Change and the final get-together with food & drinks you will also have enough time for local and international exchange and networking.
