SELECTION CRITERIA and eligibility on the next page.

Application deadline is 23rd June at 23:00 CET. All participants will be notified by 31st July 2019. 

Please visit to read the full details of our selection process.


ChangemakerXchange covers your travel costs to/from the venue as well as all of the conference costs for all four nights and five days (including hotel accommodation, inner city travel, food, entrance fees, etc.). However we expect you to cover your own visas, local travel to airport in your own country and from the airport to the venue in the host country (in very limited cases we may be able to support with some of these costs, please reach out to us). We also request a small application contribution of 15 USD (making exceptions for those who are unable to contribute) to cover our costs of thoroughly reviewing a large number of applications, for details see page 3.

Please note that we will be asking people to offset the carbon footprint of their flights and we are also committed to making our events as carbon neutral and environmentally friendly as possible.

* NOTE our view on offsetting is not that it enables us to 'guilt free' continue our polluting behaviour and that it MUST be invested into systemic projects which tackle root causes of climate change AND combined with difficult habit changes we all have to make (reduce absolutely everything you can, offset the rest in a systemic way)

Best wishes and good luck!
