Changemakers amplifies your degree, to enable you to create the change you want to see.
It's unique to Homerton, it's free, and open to all Homerton students.
Listen to what students have to say.
You're getting an amazing degree at Cambridge. So, what will do you with it? Where will you focus your time and energy? How will you be all you can be in the world? How do you want to live?
Changemakers is built on the conviction that if each us know ourselves, develops real skills in being effective in society, and understands the dynamics of the world - power, systems, communication - we have a chance: a chance of achieving meaningful things, of serving others well, and of making valuable contributions in systems that need all the commitment, passion and insight we can bring.
So, Changemakers develops your awareness of your SELF, your gritty real world skills to be effective in your SOCIETY and your practical ability for making positive impact in the WORLD.
The programme sits alongside your degree - you can do as little or as much as you wish - and is part of Homerton's longterm commitment to intelligent education combined with vision and practical hard graft: the tools for creating a more just, sustainable, inclusive world.
Listen to what other inspirational people say about Changemakers when we interviewed them at our last Annual Residential.
"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"
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.
"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.”
“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.”
"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."
"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."
