Get Ready for the Changemakers


| May 5, 2003


Changemakers.net, an initiative of Ashoka: Innovators for the Public, revolutionizes the way information is shared by people working to create positive social change worldwide. It even pays $50 for the best new ideas. ?The major problem faced by social entrepreneurs? the website states, ?is the lack of access to current relevant practices beyond their own area of expertise.? Without a commons of information, people working to solve problems wind up reinventing the wheel. Changemakers creates a forum for synthesizing and disseminating solutions to ongoing problems such as water scarcity, poverty, and hunger. Each month the site focuses on a special topic and features a resource library, community message board, and a studio of archived projects.
