Phase I - Changemakers' Room - Welcome to the Ecosystem

Second phase begins soon after the conclusion of the Training Forum. During this phase, the changemakers work on finalizing the projects addressing their chosen issue. Groups identify the innovative aspect of their project, nurture relationships with local and global organizations to implement and take up the proposal to the European Commission. This phase usually takes 2-4 months to complete.


Phase III - Implementation & Execution Phase

Upon successful acceptance for funding, each project will move to the implementation phase, both locally and internationally. With multiple mobility activities spread over partner countries, the group proceeds to build its innovation (a product / service) in stages. This phase typically lasts for 12 - 24 months.


Phase IV - Launch of Social Enterprises

At the end of the project, each group will launch a social enterprise offering a product / service to its target community. This social enterprise will have an international presence with Make Room and other group members as stakeholders.
