Changemaker Fest 2015
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 29-October 2, 2015 to become energized by an environment that encourages everyone to be a Changemaker. Together, we celebrate USD’s fifth-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 2015 Changemaker FEST will feature two main events:
The Fest Block Party -September 29, 11:30am-2:30pm
A celebration highlighting on and off campus opportunities to get involved and practice changemaking.
My Story 3.0 -September 30, 7pm -UC Forum C
An event featuring six members in the USD community. A great chance to connect, empathize and learn more about each other.
