Video Interview with Charlie Brown of Ashoka’s Changemakers

I had the opportunity to interview Charlie Brown of Ashoka’s Changemakers at the incentive2innovate conference this week at the United Nations in New York City. You can see the video interview here:

Ashoka’s Changemakers is a community of action where people can collaborate on solutions. The community provides the platform for people to attack projects one idea at a time as they attempt to solve the world’s most pressing social problems.

The goal of the community is to create a community of people willing to share solutions that have value as is or that can be built upon to create leverage beyond the benefits created by the original contributor.

Community members talk about issues, share stories, mentor, advise, and encourage each other in group forums. Ashoka’s Changemakers also partner with other foundations to offer challenges to the community.

Their mantra is “Everyone is a Changemaker.”
