Klaveness Marine support Changemaker work in Norway. They enabled us to deliver ‘Changemaker Days’ that 1) empowered young people to see how their skills such as empathy, working for the common good and taking ideas to action could be used to make long term systemic change and 2) looked at changemaker storytelling as a tool for changing mindsets, and how "by changing the narrative we can change the world".
We have a joint partnership under the umbrella theme of ‘Changemaker Experience’ where Ashoka and RWA co-created the Changemakers Yard, Changemakers Camp (capacity building programme for youth), Backyard, Årets Changemaker (Swedish award for young societal leaders), and Inspirationsdagen för Lärare (a lifelong learning day-programme for teachers on social entrepreneurship and Changemaking)
