Fancy being part of an exciting new video series with the OU and MTV?

Got a passion for equality, health or the environment? We're seeking OU students or alumni using their degree to create positive change in the world around them.


The Open University and MTV are partnering up again to shine a light on even more changemakers shaping our future. This second series of “Generation Change: Ones to Watch” will elevate and empower young adults from around the UK who are taking action.

We’re searching for inspirational OU students and graduates from diverse backgrounds who are using their studies and voice to make a positive difference. Maybe you’re an advocate making a positive difference in your local community or online. You might be supporting your local community or tackling issues related to mental health, equal rights or climate change. 

Not only could you feature in our TV and social media campaign, your story will help inspire the next generation of students to take their leap and join the OU family. Excited to apply? Click here to find out more and volunteer.
