Are you committed to global justice and sustainability in practice? Do you want to exchange ideas and network with other young people internationally?

Meet other global impact makers at the "Mindchangers Future Impact Summit - directing global change"! The State Ministry Baden-Württemberg and the Stiftung Entwicklungs-Zusammenarbeit Baden-Württemberg (SEZ) invite you to participate in THE international event on youth engagement and global justice.

We are now officially at the mid-term review of the 2030 Agenda, which shows us that as a global community we need to work together even more closely to achieve the goals of the 2030 Agenda. Youth engagement, together with civil society engagement and the interaction of all actors at the local level, is a fundamental key to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Together with young people from the Mindchangers projects in the six partner regions, we will explore innovative approaches to the UN Agenda 2030. The resulting impulses will be discussed at the Mindchangers Future Impact Summit with Rudi Hoogvliet, the State Secretary for Development Policy in Baden-Württemberg, representatives from politics, municipalities, NGOs and academia, as well as committed partners from all across the world and young people from Baden-Württemberg, in order for the approaches to be considered from different perspectives. The discourses from the Summit will then flow into the "Mindchangers Stuttgart Declaration", which will be developed during the International Youth Meeting and whose results will be passed on to representatives of the EU and the respective regional political and civil society networks as an impulse and catalogue of measures.

With art performances, international keynote speakers, and inputs from young people from the Mindchangers projects of all partner regions, we will present young engagement in all its forms and colors at the Mindchangers Future Impact Summit. . In the active phase, young people, political hosts, experts and EU stakeholders will work together to develop solutions for the 2030 Agenda as impulses of the Mindchangers Stuttgart Declaration. AThe Gallery of Change and the open-end get-together with food & drinks are the perfect opportunity for local and international exchange and networking.

About Mindchangers:

Mindchangers aims to connect and mobilize young people who are globally committed to the 2030 Agenda and the issues of climate protection, migration, diversity, respect and cohesion on a local and international level. The multi-day Mindchangers International Youth Meeting in Stuttgart brings together young people from the project regions of Baden-Württemberg, Piedmont (IT), Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes (FR), La Rioja (ES), Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles (BE) and Dolj County (RO).

Since October 2020, six European regions, civil society organizations, municipalities and young people have been working together in the EU-funded project "Mindchangers - Regions and Youth for Planet and People". In 114 projects from all Mindchangers regions, the EU project promoted individual and collective engagement of young people on climate change and climate justice, migration and sustainable development. To achieve these goals, it is important to work on strengthening cooperation between local authorities, civil society organizations and young people. One of the outcomes resulting from the project is the Mindchangers Practical Guide for the practical implementation of this cooperation.
