Got an idea to change the world? Then let’s make it happen!

We all have the potential to make a positive impact in our communities and beyond. We all have the power to become changemakers. By embracing this concept of being a changemaker, you too can tap into this powerful force for transformation and progress.


The Ideas Collective is STAND’s summer boot camp for changemakers. Over the course of three weekends, we take students and recent graduates on a process of training, collaboration and reflection to develop impactful action projects for social and environmental change. At the end you’ll be in with a chance to win seed funding get your project off the ground!

If you feel called to make a positive impact; if you have an idea to bring about change, but don’t know where to start; if you have a project or initiative that you want to take to the next level in a supportive and welcoming environment…

Then the Ideas Collective is for you!
