Changemakers Focus

MAKE A CHANGE

The Changemakers Focus gathers a group of 150 to 200 young people who will meet in sub-groups every day in Portimão,
while enjoying all the highlights of the larger festival!

To shape the world, we need to take the time to live together
and to dream.
“Let us dreamsaid Pope Francis
in the aftermath of the pandemic.

Changemakers is about taking the time to listen to the world,
to recognise “the Spirit who speaks to the Churches”,
to be actors of Life where the Spirit sends us.

Concretely, if you choose to live Portimão as a Changemaker,
the ‘à la carte’ half-days of the festival will be lived
with your chosen thematic sub-group.

Scheduled programme:

→  interactive workshops
with speakers, activists, and civil society representatives
to better understand issues at stake and widen our horizons;

→ time for exchanges between young people, to savour
the richness and diversity of our cultures, convictions, and faiths;

→  concrete projects to move from words to action,
co-created by all participants (learning by doing).

MAKE A CHANGE

Le parcours Changemakers, c’est un groupe d’environ 150 jeunes qui se retrouvera chaque jour à Portimão, tout en profitant de tous les temps forts du festival !

Car pour refaire le monde, il faut prendre le temps de vivre ensemble et de rêver. “Let us dream” disait le pape François au lendemain de la  pandémie. Changemakers, c’est prendre le temps d’écouter le monde, prendre le temps de reconnaître “l’Esprit qui parle aux Églises”, pour être acteurs de Vie là où l’Esprit nous envoie.

Concrètement, si tu choisis de vivre Portimão comme Changemaker, les demi-journées “à la carte” du festival seront vécues dans l’un des sous-groupes thématiques que tu auras choisi. Au programme : 

→  des workshops interactifs avec les intervenants, pour mieux comprendre les enjeux et ouvrir nos horizons ;

→ des temps d’échanges entre jeunes, en profitant de la richesse et de la diversité de nos cultures, de nos convictions, de nos Églises ;

→  des projets concrets pour passer de la parole aux actes, co-construits par chacun des participants (learning by doing).

THE WORLD IS BIG

That’s good, we think big too!

Among the many challenges today, you will undoubtedly
find some particularly close to your heart.

At Changemakers, we invite you to choose a course to discover or deepen a theme that you are passionate about:

→ Compassion & Social justice  → Ecology
Encounter and differences → Rethinking the economy
→ Art, faith and politics

AND AFTER THE FESTIVAL?

Changemakers, is not just an event,
it is a springboard that gives you a chance to :

  • meet other young people who want to be actors in the world;
  • have opportunity to listen to your personal calling(s);
  • receive the keys for further commitment wherever you go next.

DO I HAVE TO REGISTER?

Yes, because it’s en entire package:
form a group and work together
on a common project for a week!
