The Dopper Changemaker Challenge started in 2017 in the Netherlands. However, its overwhelming success in previous experiences made it go global. This year, it took place in Kathmandu along with other popular European cities including Amsterdam, Berlin, and London. The final of this international competition was held on 15th June Saturday not only in Kathmandu but also in Amsterdam, London, and Berlin.
