Initiated by ChangemakerXchange, The Possibilists is a global alliance of the world’s largest youth social innovation communities and a growing network of nearly 50 local youth organisations. Collectively we reach hundreds of thousands of young changemakers, activists and social entrepreneurs. Through a bi-annual study we deliver scientific insights into their lives, work and needs.
