How does the Nordic Changemaker Landscape look like?

global expertise

On November 30th Reach for Change and Ashoka Nordics launched the insights and data from the Nordic Changemaker Map - a health check on the ecosystem for changemaking and social entrepreneurship in Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway.

With the support of The Swedish Postcode Foundation, Vinnova (Sweden), Akademiet for Social Innovation (Denmark) and SITRA (Finland), we conducted a total of 205 in-depth interviews and collected 495 online surveys. A total of 541 Changemakers voices and ideas were uncovered:  361 social entrepreneurs, 45 young Changemakers and 135 organizations who lead collaborative change. Among the questions we asked were: what are their impact and financial models, what are the challenges that they face, what support mechanisms are most effective and what collaborations are most fruitful.

With the gathered data we created 4 national reports, 20 interactive digital maps (in partnership with Graph Commons) and 1 pan-Nordic analysis.
