HUMANS OF CHANGE SUMMIT
What role do each of us play in building the future we want to see? How do we connect personal mastery and value creation to find our place and purpose in the world? How can we embrace change as the only constant, learn to navigate through it, and thrive?
In 2017, we are re-launching our Summit to feature Humans Of Change - everyday people who are making change happen in ways large and small.
Our on-going Summit series has evolved over the years as a platform for storytelling, sharing insights and provoking thought around the importance of connecting change within ourselves, our communities and the global economy.
The online Summit will run in conjunction with our offline series of monthly Change Talks at The Change School GYM (Gym for Your Mind).
EVERY THURSDAY 8PM GMT+8 on YOUTUBE
In 2015, we endeavoured to re-ignite the global conversation around the growing 'Third Culture' phenomenon. We invited Third Culture Kids (TCKs), Cross Culture Kids (CCKs) and subject experts to share their stories of adapting to change throughout their formative years and how the 'Third Culture' is challenging notions of 'identity' and 'belonging'. Watch our inaugural Summit Welcome videos below to learn more...
In 2016, we expanded our speaker pool to also include non-TCKs who are embracing change in their personal / professional lives - Expats, Global Citizens, Nomads and Change Makers - to celebrate diversity, emphasise shared values, and explore how we derive purpose by better connecting with ourselves, eachother and the world we want. Head over to our blog for a summary of the stories and insights shared in our Summit Talks.
Goals and Objectives:
Unpack the many dimensions of change that impact our daily Life / Work

Inaugural Summit Welcome
Hear from our Chief Nomad and Founders to see where our Summit evolved from!
What is a Third Culture Kid (TCK) or Cross Culture Kid (CCK)?
Third Culture Kid (TCK, 3CK) is a term used to refer to children who were raised in a culture outside of their parents’ culture for a significant part of their development years. A Cross-Cultural Kid (CCK) is a person who has lived – or meaningfully interacted with – two or more cultural environments for a significant period of time during developmental years. These definitions are not constrained to describing only children, but can also be used to describe adults who have grown up as TCKs or CCKs. Typically a citizen of the world, global nomad, international traveler and cultural explorer with an ability to integrate wherever you go.
What is Global Citizenship?
