Why attend ACMS 2020?

attendeesACMS

In the midst of the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, we must unite around ideas for the good of all.  That’s what the Ashoka Changemaker Summit is all about. And while the European editions of this event (in Berlin 2018 and in Barcelona 2019) have already impacted hundreds of attendees, this year we felt the need to step up the game.

Together, we’ll explore the most transformative solutions coming from our network — the largest community of systems-changing social entrepreneurs. At this global virtual summit, we seek to rediscover certainty in universal values and the power of changemaking. And we’ll see how everyone, everywhere has a role to play: to stand up for what’s right and contribute to create a more just, resilient, and sustainable future.

Here’s why you should join the ACMS 2020:

  1. It’s a global event: Experience inspiring change leaders from across the globe!

The Ashoka Changemaker Summit will unite social innovators and leaders from business and philanthropy from across the world. It will be the place where you can listen and learn, co-create and build meaningful connections with the leading minds in the sector. You can connect to others through the chat, on one-one-on video-calls within the summit platform or in discussion or community forums.

  1. Fewer obstacles, smaller carbon footprint through a 100% online event!

The Covid-19 crisis is (unfortunately) not the only crisis we’re living through. The climate crisis is continues to escalate. We are very happy to offer an event that will happen in a virtual space – meaning no travel costs and a significantly lower carbon footprint!

  1. Networking – more intuitive and powerful than ever before

Thanks to the AI support from our event platform, you can easily connect with the exact people that you want to talk to and experience the world’s largest community of social innovators and change leaders first-hand.
