Part one

Record and upload your two-minute application video

Due to the high number of applications we receive each year, we only use the application videos during the first round of selection, we therefore ask that you read the video instructions before you begin. The written answers in the application form will be used for the second and the final selection rounds.

Once your have made and uploaded your video, keep the link to add to your application form.

Part two

Pay your 35usd application fee

The application fee is 35USD and can be paid using PayPal, Western Union or credit/debit card.

Please keep your PayPal transaction ID/ card payment order number/ Western Union money transaction number to add to your application form.

The application fee constitutes less than 0.5% of the average cost of bringing a participant to the summit.

By charging an application fee, we hope that those applying are truly committed to participating at the summit and to becoming an active member of the Global Changemakers network thereafter.
