Become a changemaker

You want to make a difference and don't know where to start? You have an idea but lack the confidence or resources to make it happen? You want to contribute to the solution of an environmental or social challenge?
Then our imp!act training is for you!

During the 3.5 day Imp!act training, you will:

  • Get together with enthusiastic young people between 18 and 30 years
  • Get to know more about our planet's most challenging problems
  • Through intense brainstorming come up with inspirational ideas on how to solve them
  • Put your ideas through the test in Amsterdam
  • Present your plans to a panel of renowned experts 

Talking about the world's problems won't solve them — but collaborating to take action might. So what are you waiting for?
