Does your Bachelor’s or Master’s research focus on clean (drinking) water or plastic waste? Hallelujah! Sounds like you’re the one that we want (ooh ooh ooooh). Submit your project or thesis subject before 12 April 2019 using the registration form. Describe – short and concise – what your idea is, what research methods you use and what you would do with €5.000 funding to make this ground-breaking. After a lifetime of procrastinating, we can recommend that you set your deadline a day earlier.

Did you get a Golden Ticket?
After 23 April, we will select 20 potential changemakers per country. By the end of April we will let you know if you are one of the lucky ones!

Pitch like a pro
Are you a semi-finalist? We will help you get ready for the finals. On 29 May, the semi-finalists get a pitch training so they can blow the judges away with their ideas.

The final countdown!
BOOM! You did it: you’re in the grand finale, along with 19 other future Einsteins, Boyan Slats and Andy Warhols of the world. Enough to make your mother proud, but of course, you’re here for the gold medal. The final stage of the Changemaker Challenge will take place 15 and 16 June, on a secret location. Even the program remains a secret – but believe us when we say, it’s going to be awesome. By the end of the weekend, we will reveal the winner.
