Imagine a world where everyone is really a changemaker.
If everyone is a changemaker, there’s no way a problem can outrun a solution.
Changemakers scale deep when they change perceptions, behaviors, the way people think, and mindsets. Once you have changed how people think and behave, then they change the way their kids behave and the way their neighbors and friends behave, this creates deep social impact.
Media plays a fundamental role as a tool for changing norms, attitudes and behaviors. Media sets the agenda by presenting the topics we should be caring and reading about, and later by normalizing those topics. You will be able to find in this page changemaking stories, events and reports from Ashoka Arab World.
