Nordic Changemaker Map

Taking the pulse on the Nordic Changemaker landscape


The Nordic Changemaker Map aims to identify and analyze the current health status, networks and trends among Changemakers in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. The collected data will be developed into a digital and visualised map, a set of recommendations and public event series.  

The Nordic Changemaker Map is a collaborative project with the objective to identify key stakeholders, networks, connectivity and needed support to strengthen the Nordic ecosystem for social entrepreneurship and Changemaking.


The Map uses a Snowball Analysis method that enables a grassroots approach to and thus engaging Changemakers from all parts of the region. The Map will be conducted both through a quantative approach of online questionnaire, as well as through in-depth personal interviews.


The Nordic Changemaker Map invites 3 categories of Changemakers:

(a) established social entrepreneurs,
(b) young Changemakers, and
(c) Changemaker initiatives.
