About the programm
Innovate for Change is a capacity building program for social entrepreneurs, innovators and civil society actors. We invite alumni of the SOIN programs from Russia to participate in both online and offline seminars and apply own micro-projects and events focusing on innovative solutions for societal, civic, environmental challenges, especially human rights, civic education, inclusion and sustainable development issues.

Participants will take part in workshops on project design and management, fundraising instruments and cooperation on local level and thus learn how to expand the reach of their current work. Up to five applicants will receive microgrants between 70.000 to 100.000 rubles for seminars, public events, educational meetings, study visits or other measures in Russian regions.
