Global Changemaker Youth Ambassador Program 2018

OCIC’s Global Changemaker Youth Ambassador Awards were celebrated during International Development Week 2018. Each year, OCIC honours outstanding youth who have demonstrated active engagement with communities and civil society organizations for the promotion of international cooperation and social justice.

OCIC member organizations, networks and institutions nominate Youth Ambassadors to participate in this peer network and capacity building program. Youth Ambassadors will be given the tools to promote their work, share their stories, and develop relationships with other like-minded and passionate youth. This is also an opportunity for OCIC members to increase their organizational profile and gain resources for communicating about their successes.

The 2018 Changemakers are working on areas related to innovation towards sustainable development, gender equality, and environmental justice.
