The Possibilists

What is it?
The Possibilists is a joint initiative between 16 of the world’s biggest and leading youth social innovation communities. Together, they work directly with hundreds of thousands of young social innovators and reach a social media audience of over 3 million. It is the first time in the sector so many organisations have come together to collaborate and co-create solutions to create better conditions for Changemakers so they can thrive personally and sustain and scale their impact.

The Possibilists is kindly supported by and SAP

Our Mission
The Possibilists aims to create a shared understanding of the needs of young changemakers in order to increase alignment and desire within the support ecosystem to collaboratively improve the conditions, so that young Changemakers thrive personally and are supported to sustain and scale their impact.​

What does it do?

We run scientific studies to explore the impact, challenges and needs of these young changemakers. We believe these reports will become a leading resource for governments, foundations, civil society and anyone willing to support young social innovators

(b) Collective Action Projects 
We launch collective action projects targeted at improving the ecosystem for young changemakers, the first being The Possibilists Directory, a repository of support offers  or changemakers.
