Homerton Changemakers

Learn the tools to make a profound difference for good - for yourself, your future, and the world you live in

Educating for a Thriving World

Changemakers amplifies your degree so you're ready to make a true difference in the world. With leadership, insight, self-awareness, understanding of complexity, & powerful mindsets & skills.

You're getting an amazing degree at Cambridge. So, what will do you with it?  How will you make difference in the world? How will you help others and systems around you thrive? How will YOU thrive?

Changemakers is built on the idea that while a Cambridge degree can be brilliantly formative, there are skills, mindsets and attributes it doesn’t always cover:

  • deep awareness of yourself and the impact of your perspectives on how you act and achieve
  • methods for influencing & inspiring how things get done in the world
  • the complexities of power, culture and politics, and the density of challenges including climate change and profound inequalities. 

So, Changemakers develops your awareness of your SELF, your gritty real world skills to be effective in SOCIETY, and your practical ability for making positive impact in the WORLD. It particularly acknowledges the diversity of students’ backgrounds, aptitudes and interests, and designs opportunities with this in mind. 

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 progressive, intelligent education combined with practical graft: the tools for creating a more just, more sustainable and inclusive world.
