We empower people to innovate and co-create positive change in their communities, workplaces and world.
How do we do this? The power of ChangeCamp is in your people: their inspiration and ideas; their experience, skills and tools; and their capacity for “can do” and collaboration with others.
ChangeCamp brings these “doers” together and creates a dynamic, fun and fertile space for cross-pollination and collaborative self-organisation. This experience helps participants turn ideas into action, amplify the impact of existing initiatives, or approach an intractable issue with fresh eyes and support.
Most importantly, ChangeCamp helps people build collective ownership of their community’s, industry’s and environment’s futures. Together, they create a tomorrow we all want to see.
Delivered as a face-to-face or virtual event
We design ChangeCamps for organisations that want to shape the future of their community and industry, or work with others to address social challenges.
Each type of ChangeCamp operates a little differently by activating, facilitating or coordinating change for different groups and challenges. But the people are always the core magic of every ChangeCamp. The format is the formula for every camp’s success.
This format is a participatory workshop-style event that’s created by participants for participants. It enables both the structure for productive, focused discussions and space for collaborative magic to happen.
With the support of ChangeCamp’s experienced facilitators, participants help set the agenda at the beginning of the day, speak at the sessions, and initiate and host a range of “Open Spaces.”
Sessions and Open Spaces are highly interactive discussions, rather than presentations. Hosts encourage participation from participants and event organisers alike. Open Spaces enable participants to follow wherever their topic interest takes them around the venue space.
This flow is nestled within a structure that encourages participants to share ideas at the beginning of the day and then focus on how they might work with others. They round off the day by turning to action and collaborations beyond the camp.
One of the most exciting parts for me is watching the real, tangible initiatives and connections that spawned from the day and seeing them continue to grow.
A great chance to think differently with some inspirational people with shared interests.
Brings change-makers together to cross pollinate and vibe off each other and, of course, get help, support and nourishment.
A fresh way of gathering and talking about change.
Inspiring, energising, motivating, valuable, fun.
An inspired opportunity to connect with passionate individuals in a "dynamically structured" way - organic networking through focused discussion.
A wonderful day of meeting new people and hearing new perspectives.
It's like a waterhole, where proactive people who care about making a contribution, gather.
