Change Makers

Change Makers

Change Makers is a series of meetups, workshops and an ideation weekend, all designed to foster and empower a diverse community of agrifood system change-makers.

We need all hands on deck if we are going to build a future-proof, healthy and sustainable food system. Change Makers is designed to build and foster a European community of under-represented founders and provide them with the tools to solve the challenges facing our food system. 

To connect future founders and innovators, two meet-ups are planned, which will equip individuals with current information on food system challenges and facilitate co-founder relationships. Following this, we will open applications for our ideation weekend, specifically shaped to build entrepreneurial skills and support under-represented founders to bring their innovative ideas to fruition.
