I have already taken part in a Global Changemakers summit. Can I still apply?

The 60 regular participants must be new Changemakers who haven’t taken part in previous summits. However, as with all recent summits we will be bringing 10 existing Global Changemakers (aged 18-25 on the first day of the summit) to the Euro-Africa Youth Summit as peer facilitators. They will be asked to apply between 30 January and 17 February as well.

How much does attendance at a Global Changemakers summit cost?

The British Council covers all costs (i.e. travel, visa, accommodation, meals, training costs) for the selected participants.
