To solve the world's most pressing problems, collaboration among people, nations, political and economic unions are paramount. Connecting the world is no longer a choice, but an imperative.


“To solve the world’s most pressing problems collaboration among people, nations, political and economic unions is paramount. Connecting the world is no longer a choice, but an imperative. With social change movements being advocated at a global scale, an ecosystem, where ideas turn into action, intent becomes impact and innovations and changemakers are connected is crucial. That is precisely what the Global Social Change Ecosystem, Make Room is all about.”

Our Story

Make Room was first established in 2016 as “Make Room India”, following the 13th European Union – India Summit where European Commission President Jean Claude Juncker, Council of Europe President Donald Tusk and Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi reconfirmed their commitment to jointly strengthen the Strategic Partnership between European Union and India. The partnership was established to strengthen the collaboration between European Union and India in wide range of areas for cooperation such as foreign and security policy, trade and investment, economy, global issues as well as people to people contacts and human rights.

Make Room India was launched as an independently organized Social Change Ecosystem creating and strengthening civil society’s cooperation to drive positive social change between European Union and India.

Since then, Make Room has grown to become a Global Social Change Ecosystem – a unique platform for impact-oriented intellectual, cultural and personal interactions between changemakers of Europe and the rest of the world.

Make Room fosters civil dialogue and creates impact-oriented partnerships between individuals and organizations of Europe and the rest of the world facilitating dialogue to create effective initiatives developing innovative, sustainable and easily-replicable solutions to problems found in both – Europe and elsewhere.

Make Room drives positive social change globally from its representations in Latvia, Italy, Romania, Cyprus, India and Nigeria.
