AFI Changemakers Summit on Human Rights and International Development

As a major international actor and with an increased commitment to foreign aid, the UK is in a strong position to effect positive global change. As such, we believe that the perspective and voice of young people must be taken into account.

The Ariel Foundation International Changemakers event will be an opportunity for young people in the UK to come together to formulate possible policy responses to issues facing the international community. Our event will be chaired by Julie Ward MEP; Julie has developed an ongoing relationship with AFI and we feel her longstanding commitment to human rights and young people makes her the perfect chairperson for our event.

Our Ariel Foundation International Changemakers event (AFI Changemakers) will provide the opportunity to be part of small working groups focusing on major international issues. The working groups will be supported by experts and UK parliamentarians but this is ultimately a platform for YOUR voice to be heard. Having previously held similar summits at the United Nations (Human Rights Council, Right to Development, World Health Assembly, Social Forum) in Geneva, AFI Changemakers will work with you to compile your policy recommendations into reports which will then be published by Ariel Foundation International and will be submitted to various international organisations.
