Change-Maker Forum

Change-Makers will come together for the annual forum. The forum connects students and schools around Australia in one major event. Join us and celebrate young leaders nominated for the Australian Olympic Change-Maker award.

The forum will feature guest Olympians as we delve into insightful discussion about leadership, overcoming challenges in creating change, as well as gaining first-hand insight in our athletes' experience at the Olympic Games. During the event students will be able to interact and ask questions, having them answered live.

Change-Maker National Summit


The national summit is a unique event that brings together up to 25 young leaders from around the country. During this event, students will work alongside Olympians and provide a vital youth voice and recommendations to the AOC.

The summit is held in December and the event will take place in person.

To be part of the national summit, students are required to submit a 1-minute video which actively demonstrates how you:

• Display leadership through sport in your school or local community, and/or
• Use sport as a vehicle to improve health & wellbeing and drive social change in your school or local community

Successful submissions will be based upon the student's ability to demonstrate:

• Leadership
• Social Impact
• Innovation
• Inclusion of the program's 2022 theme: "Power the Change"
• Complies with the (17 - Video Criteria) in the terms and conditions

A panel of Olympians will determine the successful students.
