UBC Changemaking Series

A series of events for anybody who's interested in making a difference, big or small.

2019-2020 Event information will be announced August 2019. 

Student groups interested in collaborating are invited to email


Changemaking events highlight that there is no one “right” way to create an impact on a community. They showcase how changemaking is led through various individuals and fields of work.

Changemaking means to affect, advocate or create change. This requires pro-active efforts to shift your own perspective, challenge the status quo and ideate community-minded innovations.

Everyone has their own journey to making an impact—the Changemaking event hosted by the Centre for Community Engaged Learning (CCEL) offers a platform to identify, build or expand the vision and action of your idea.
