AYS 2011 is looking for social entrepreneurs, community activists and people with a track record of volunteering who have not taken part in any earlier Global Changemakers summits.
Applicants need to be between 18 and 24 years.
They need to be available in India between Sunday, 17 July and Saturday, 23 July.
The call for applications will go live here, on www.global-changemakers.net, on 1 April 2011 and last until 17 April. Applicants will be asked to submit a written application as well as an application video no longer than 2 minutes.
During this period, we will also be asking for peer facilitator applications from Changemakers aged 16-25who have taken part in previous summits but have not previously taken part as facilitators. (These can be from any countries, not only the ones listed above.) Once the call for applications has ended, the 60 participants will be selected by the Global Changemakers team in co-operation with local British Council offices and the peer facilitators.
Travel costs to and from the summit, visa fees, accommodation and meals during the summit will be covered by the British Council.
More information will be made available once the call for applications has gone live. Make sure to check back on 1 April 2011!
