Mindchangers looks forward to seeing you at the Hope festival in Brussels!

This year, the Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles is organising its Mindchangers regional event in Brussels from 13 to 15 October in the framework of the Hope festival for sustainable development. Highlights of the programme include an exhibition of Mindchangers granted projects in Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles, awareness-raising activities led by grantees and their youths as well as discussions on sustainable development issues.
In April 2022, the second Mindchangers call for projects was launched, aimed at associations and local authorities in Wallonia and Brussels wishing to develop projects that encourage the active and voluntary participation of young people. Ten projects were selected and are currently being implemented in the territory.
You will be able to find out more about them on the Mindchangers stand at the Hope Festival and get to know some of the project leaders and their young people, who have put together a programme of activities and events to raise awareness on sustainable development topics such as climate change and migration. A special partnership has been forged with Parckfarm, which is joining in the Mindchangers activities for the occasion.
