Our society is longing for changes, new and thorough changes that can actually make a real difference. Changemakers is a factual series of portraits of 5 of the most innovative, interesting, striking people and their projects, covering a variety of themes.

What’s interesting is how people get to develop a project or an idea based on their own expertise and experience in one particular subject or field. Applying this expertise in order to develop something that initially makes a small difference but then also has the capacity of changing mentalities and as such engender real changes on a more structural level is the core of each of these portraits. The beauty also relies in the empowerment of these personalities: they truly believe in the fact that they can start up something that can lead to a true change.

Who are they, where do they come from, how did they get this idea? We talk with them about the whole process from idea to implementation. How do they get to succeed in their objectives and how do they work with local communities in order to achieve their goals?

Each episode focuses on innovative entrepreneurships, portraying the one person who all made it possible. Changemakers is a series about people who are not afraid of stepping away from old structures to choose new paths of living and working. They are driven, passionate and have a very clear vision about how they see the world. This philosophy is the essence of each episode: how do they think, how do they see the future and what is their contribution in changing that world?

The social entrepreneur or changemaker is the protagonist and narrator of the story. He guides us through this new way of living and thinking, allowing us thus to see a part of what could be our future someday.

For this series we have been working with expert platforms such as Ashoka Changemakers and Michel Bauwens, in order to find the pioneer personalities who proved to have had an impact on their environment.

We believe this series is of a great importance, given the fact that people are hungry for new ways of living. Only, in the jungle of the Internet they don’t always find their ways.
