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.
Our students, mentors and guest lecturers tell us they feel inspired and uplifted by Changemakers. Listen to what our students have to say.
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.
Changemakers events are open to all students at Homerton. You can sign up for one, two or all. There's no minimum requirement & no assessment: what you do get, however, are methods for improving academic performance, time to work out what you are passionate about, access to leading coaches and faculty, and real-world skill-building.
"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."
