The Ignitor Platform

THE IGNITOR PLATFORM

Now that you are a part of this platform we encourage you to familiarize yourself with the platform and its’ features, as well as trying to engage with them. This platform features a number of ways for changemakers to evolve, learn, and strengthen their skills. Create your own global network of changemakers.

Community rules

To ensure that our community is a safe and open environment we have created a set of rules for how to behave on this platform. Take these rules to heart, and feel free to explore! You are always welcome to ask the admins if you are unsure about the rules.

Treat everyone like a human being

No one within this community should feel harassed, bullied or receive threats from other members. The Ignitor Platform is a place of learning and growth. Take the time to listen to other members, challenge ideas and aim to learn together.

Respect other members' privacy

Do not post or threaten to post personal or revealing information about others. Never post or threaten to post intimate or sexually explicit media of anyone.

Think twice about self-promotion

Members should refrain from posting links to their own content or products outside the areas that are specifically dedicated to this.

What is shared on this platform, stays on the platform

The Ignitor Fellowship wants to create a safe environment for all of you to be open and vulnerable, and feel like you are free to speak your mind.

Be authentic

The Ignitor Fellowship and the Ignitor community want to get to know you! Do not impersonate any individual or entity in a deceptive manner. Content manipulation or cheating such as spamming, vote manipulation, ban evasion or subscription fraud will not be tolerated.

Participate!

The Ignitor Fellowship encourages you to attend events, participate in challenges and complete courses. Get to know other members; they are here because they aspire to be better changemakers and leaders, just like you.

Post responsibly

We remind you that any comment or content you share on the platform is your sole responsibility. The Ignitor team does monitor posts, but do not hesitate to contact one of the admins or email us at ignitor@nobelpeacecenter.org if you see anyone break the rules presented above.

Evolve your skills

Dialogue Communities

As a member of the platform, you can join different dialogue communities where you can discuss topics with other members. Learn about other perspectives by engaging in dialogue with your fellow changemakers.

Challenges

The Ignitor Fellowship will publish challenges throughout the year. These challenges will require you to take a deep dive into the Nobel Peace Prize Laureates' field and reframe it in another context.

Courses

Professors, business leaders, and community leaders provide you with courses on topics such as dialogue and leadership. These courses are the first steps towards making change and creating an impact on the issues that matter to you.

Opportunities, Events and Scholarships

The Ignitor Fellowship will post different opportunities, events, and scholarships that members are free to apply for or participate in. These can be arranged by the Ignitor Fellowship, by universities, or by other engaged and conscious corporations, foundations, and NGOs.

Earn points and badges

You’ll gain badges by completing certain activities. Joining and winning challenges, completing courses and becoming a student ambassador will all award you with badges. Each badge will give you 100 points and winner badges 200 points. 

Starting at level 1, you gain a blue badge when you have participated in an event, a challenge, or completed our dialogue course.

You progress by participating in more events, challenges, and courses. After a certain amount of participation, you will gain a green badge.

Other badges signalize what your position is within the platform. Student ambassadors, platform administrators, challenge winners, and Ignitor Fellows will all receive unique badges.
