Changemakers Across the World

When we come together as one, anything is possible. Leaders Across the World is setting up the first-ever worldwide environmental event to take hold of our future and share the power we all hold. Thirty fellows will be selected worldwide to host a fully-funded environmental activity in September. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis.

Program Date

September 2022

Overview

In September, LATW will be hosting the Changemakers Across the World (CATW) event, which entails 30 youth-led environmental projects worldwide focused on bettering our environment. We aim to bring together young people worldwide to spread awareness of our rapidly changing climate, beautify our communities, and advocate for legislative changes. LATW will fully fund 30 young people/organizations to host these programs and work with selected fellows to set up their projects, recruit volunteers, and host a successful event. Environmental events can range from trash cleanups to protests to workshops for your community. Think outside the box!
