Olympic Change-Maker

Change-Maker Forum

Change-Makers will come together for the annual forum. The F\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.

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.

• 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.
