Examples of change
Global School Climate strikes
My example of change is: Global School Climate Strikes
This is a change because: It demonstrates the increasing influence that movements led by young people are driving social change. Young people have mobilized together on a global cause with strikes that took place in more than 2000 cities across more than 100 countries, with support from institutions such as schools and Greenpeace. The global movement is pushing for action on national climate policy and also on voting ages for young people so that they are able to be part of the decision making around electoral issues. The movement was inspired by the actions of one young climate activist – Greta Thurnberg, and it has sparked a global movement of young people pushing for change.

Edgeryders: collaboration, experimentation and community impact
My example of change is: Edgeryders: collaboration, experimentation and community impact
This is a change because: It is a distributed, collective network and think tank that brings together an open, online community of activists, social innovators, artists, makers and thought leaders to collaborate on projects for social good. Members collaborate together on an online platform where they work mutually on projects and networks focusing on evidence base decision making. They have a strong focus on experimentation, communicating, collaboration and community building. It speaks to new ways of working that bring together different actors to solve common challenges.

Indian startup Proto develops fact check service in partnership with WhatsApp in time for national elections
My example of change is: Indian startup Proto develops fact check service in partnership with WhatsApp in time for national elections
This is a change because: It demonstrates how organizations are proactively responding to changing and emerging risks in societies and working with local organizations/startups on solutions. This response to a rise of fake news and a series of lynching in 2018 triggered by rumours that were circulated through WhatsApp. The service will cover four regional languages and will work with organizations at the grassroots level to counter misinformation spread during the election period.
