Ashoka ChangeMakers

Social Entrepreneurs are not content just to give a fish or teach how to fish. They will not yet rest until they have revolutionized the fishing industry”. Here is Ashoka’s innovative Entrepreneurship Organization’s main motto which was further expalined by Gijs, during a 20-minutes stand at the Multi-Media Center on Tuesday April 19th, 7:30pm. Based on the TED talks model, the Fellow Member of Ashoka living in Evergreen presented the Social Organization’s dynamic around the world and how its Fellows generate systemic changes within the Environmental, Human Rights, Democracy, Economy, Rural Development and youth areas.

Gijs is a Fellow Member of Ashoka since two years. He is also telling us about his social activity in India and sharing some insights on how Ashoka’s philosophy and Auroville both fit together at some stages. Gijs is kindly available to provide information to any social entrepreneur interested in joining Ashoka.Gijs presentation was part of the Earth Week Program.
