Announcing the Changemaker Correspondents

By April 23, 2019

Join us on a journey around the world with Changemaker Correspondents

We believe in a better future – one where everyone has a roof over their head, food in their belly, opportunity within reach, and a healthy planet to call home. It’s a big dream, but the thing is, it’s possible.

At, we’re fortunate to be part of an ecosystem of organizations striving to make this future real. Behind each of them are individual people using the drive in their heart and the tools in their hand to create this change. To celebrate these people and their tireless commitment to better, we’re excited to announce the first cohort of Changemaker Correspondents!

We’ve tasked four influential storytellers with bringing these stories to life. They’ll spend time on site at nonprofits and universities around the world to discover the heroes and heroines behind the scenes of social change. We’ll learn what keeps them up at night and gets them out of bed in the morning, what they are both scared of and hopeful for the future. We’ll understand how they view and use technology as a tool for change.

Meet the Correspondents

In the coming months, stay tuned for behind-the-scenes footage, correspondent profiles, and more as they dive into their stories. From climate change to the opportunity gap, illustration to video, we’ll learn about some of the most pressing challenges facing our time through art, imagery, and the written word. We’ll see the world through the eyes of those fighting these challenges every day. This is storytelling unlike any has ever done before and we can’t wait to share it with you!
