Community Building

Young Changemakers Community #8

Many successful social innovations are based upon building active participative communities to scale their impact. Communities fit with current trends and (young) people’s desire for a purposeful career and becoming a change agent. The value of online communities is increasing with enormous technological possibilities with social media, e-learning and participative platforms. Effective marketing is no longer centered around “sending”, but all about “engaging” the customer and connect them with your story.


As a response we see rising demand for community professionals. A job often vaguely defined. During this Young Changemakers Event you acquire knowledge and skills in effectively building and managing a community around your idea or for an organisation. Of course we will create an inspirational setting with real cases to work on posted by social entrepreneurs looking to strengthen the communities around their concept.

The following organisations would love to connect with you:

SnappCar’s mission is to reduce the number of cars in Europe with 5 million by 2022. By sharing cars together we can free up space in our Western European cities. Residents get to meet new neighbours and connect with them whilst bringing down the car-production. A strong and engaged SnappCar community is fundamental to achieving this goal. Let’s waste less and share more.”

OneWorld is the Dutch leading multimedia platform on global development issues and sustainability. OneWorld has built a powerful community of Dutch citizens with an interest in global solidarity and the urge to explore their own possibilities to be part of it. OneWorld is their link to the world through their monthly magazine, events and website. They would love to hear your ideas to make their community even stronger.

Starters4Communities has started the Young Changemakers Community in October 2016. With monthly gatherings students and starters connect to get inspired and learn about social innovations, acquire 21st century skills and strengthen their network and career opportunities. The events are well attended and the community is steadily growing. How can we take it to the next level? How can we add value for you?

Van burgerparticipatie, naar verbinding en realisatie

Antje Tilstra, programma coördinator sociaal ondernemen bij Starters4Communities en één van de projectleiders van Wijkkunde, vertelt hoe zij verbinding leggen tussen verschillende partijen: “Wat voor vragen spelen er nu en waar loop je tegenaan? – Daar zijn wij bij Wijkkunde vaak benieuwd naar. In de maandelijkse gesprekken kunnen bewoners hun hulpvraag met ons delen. Gelijk aan het einde van het gesprek kunnen wij ze naar de juiste personen doorverwijzen binnen ons netwerk. Zo zijn wij een verbindende partij. Soms maken we gebruik van sociaal kapitaal en nodigen we bij de gesprekken de juiste mensen uit die veel ervaring hebben met een bepaald onderwerp. Zo wordt er expertise en ervaringen uitgewisseld. Aan het einde wordt er een verslag met actiepunten opgesteld, zodat zij direct verder kunnen”.
