Changemaker Fest 2014

What is the Changemaker FEST?
The Changemaker FEST is a week dedicated to exploring, defining and putting social change into action. The USD community comes together on the week of September 30-October 4, 2014 to become energized by an environment that encourages everyone to be a Changemaker. Together, we celebrate USD’s fourth-year being designated as an Ashoka U Changemaker Campus by taking time to learn about many opportunities and best practices for engaging in social transformation around the world. This is a USD community driven celebration in which students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents and community leaders have the chance to share how they are practitioners of changemaking on a daily basis, starting with how we grow as individuals to how we go beyond ourselves to be active agents in shaping local, national and global communities.

The planning committee is accepting proposals to engage our community in exploring paths to create change. Please take a look at the call for proposals. We have opened up the opportunity to participate not only by hosting an event or activity but also co-presenting or sponsoring keynote speakers or having a booth at the FEST Kick off event.

Submit your idea to participate; the deadline for submissions is Friday, June 13.
