Homerton Changemakers: Now for Tomorrow
You might ask yourself – why get involved with Changemakers? Daring to imagine what we imagine, do what we do, and achieve what we achieve, we’d say – why wouldn’t you?
We could bombard you with facts about the dozens of events we’ve held, the hundreds of students who have signed up, and the thousands of hours our wonderful supporters have donated.
But instead, we prefer to point to the transformative impact of the programme in the words of students themselves:
"It’s about far more than you making a massive difference: it’s about you becoming a better person"
"Incredibly inspiring, empowering, connecting, whilst promoting a deep introspection"
"Changemakers has put me on a path of finding my self-confidence and my voice"
"It feels really powerful, really uplifting. I feel part of something"
'It’s the confidence to not only think but ACT"
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. And every event is free of charge.
The programme is modular so you can dip in and out whenever and however you wish. And you can choose what to focus on - from social innovation and entrepreneurialism to systems thinking and tools for high-performance.
Every element works to build your toolkit, heighten your understanding, and help you connect the personal to societal impact. It’s also a great way to work with people from other disciplines and year groups, and to extend your network of like-minded, visionary folks.

“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."
