Building a global community of like-minded young people and shining a light on their journeys with the hope of empowering others to imagine their own path forward.
Shaped by Youth Culture.
Powered by Social Change.
Our community of global change makers come from 220+ countries and territories around the world.
Our goal is to build out a community of like-minded young people that can network together to bring about all forms of positive change. Our job is to shine a light on their stories and successes with other communities so they can see a path forward for ‘change’ with the help of real-time examples.
We have five communities that we draw inspiration from every day

'I love working with Thred. They have positive energy and a great vibe, but they’re also genuinely committed to empowering Gen Z in the realms of activism, entrepreneurship, and business. I wish more Universities and employers shared the same attitude as Thred.'
Dan Kiernan, Head of Careers, Saïd Business School, University of Oxford

'I signed up for Thred because I believe that sharing information is powerful and changes the way we see our world. I want to bring awareness to the lack of funding for public schools in Peru, which has led to an education gap based on privilege and a lack of access to further education.'
Dallana Sanchez, Peru

Change Maker Network & Directory.
At Thred, we have both a 'Change Maker Network' (CMN) and a 'Change Maker Directory' (CMD). The CMN is an extension of the Thred team, they are a collection of our global Gen Z ambassadors, champions, discord moderators, remote writers and change-makers who are on the ground driving forward social change in their local areas.
The CMD is a global directory of expert Gen Z activists, entrepreneurs, creators, artists, musicians and cultural opinion leaders making waves around the world.
We give you access to both our CMN and CMD to enable us to find just the right Gen Zers to co-create, survey, product test, interview and more. They are here to be a part of the process, move the conversation forward and turn up the social dial.
'Nowadays, digital spaces like Instagram, Snapchat, and TikTok are being used to develop our ‘civic identities'. To express our political views in creative ways. The key difference between
Gen Z’s civic engagement and older, traditional forms, is an easy entry point.
Today, anyone can make super scalable content.
We’re able to adopt an approach to civic engagement that blends both digital and real-life actions.
We think of it as our Digital Citizenship. Fundamentally different from the traditional media of television, newspapers and films; social media allows us what is called ‘participatory culture’. In other words, it
allows us to choose what we engage with and shape our own ideas based on our experiences.
We've become the curators of what is important, rather than any one editor or company – and that’s
a big shift. These symbolic digital ‘participatory’ acts can be thought of as moments of claiming our
‘voice’. Though on the surface acts of ‘voice’ may seem trivial and disconnected, these acts are
the foundation of our digital civic engagement.'
