We're driven by a bold ambition to form a better world.
The great challenges of our time, from climate emergency to geo-political crises demand better of us. We need to listen: to our inner selves, the planet and each other. To think, forge bonds, and act, for the benefit of us all, and for all our tomorrows.
Homerton Changemakers: Where who you are meets what you do.
Unique to Homerton College, the programme equips our students with the intellectual force, energy and edge to become ambassadors for change. The programme is unapologetically ambitious and proudly bespoke.
We build essential skills for today's world: self-awareness, leadership, collaboration, deep listening and thinking, sustainable mindsets, entrepreneurship, communications, and the capacity for contextualising these in an era of profound, intense change. We help students to both understand change, and to lead it. We do this informed by scholarship in business, psychology, literature, philosophy and the arts. Students have opportunities to work beyond their disciplines with leading thinkers, influencers and visionaries; and with each other.
Our students, mentors and guest lecturers tell us they feel inspired and uplifted by Changemakers. Listen to what our students have to say.

Making change by dissenting from old orthodoxies is Homerton’s DNA. At Homerton I learned how to be an agent of change rather than a passive bystander. That’s why I support Changemakers.
Prof Greg Clark CBE FAcSS Homerton (1981 -1986)
“Above all, I feel empowered by the opportunity that Changemakers have given me to deeply connect and exchange ideas with like-minded people of all ages and backgrounds - and a powerful reminder that it is up to our generation, each and every one of us, to make this world a better place to live in.”
Changemakers has introduced me to a community of wonderful and inspiring people. Each Changemaker event I have attended has left me feeling energised and excited to tackle the big challenges our world is facing today. Having the right values, tools, attitude and people on my side has emboldened me to champion radical positive change.
"The world has come undone and I would like to change it every day. Change does not come at once, it is a wave, building before it breaks. I support Changemakers because I am part of that wave committed to a present moment rooted in satisfaction for all"
"Homerton Changemakers is a brilliant and necessary invitation for us to raise our game as humans. To explore how to draw new maps for a world with a future.”
"Homerton Changemakers helped me realise how much push for change there currently is - the programme creates a supportive environment to channel it into proper changemaking."
