An Invitation to Join #ChangeTheNow

In 2018 Georgian College, Canada’s first Ashoka Changemaker College, wanted to know if they could mobilize students from kindergarten to Post Secondary into a movement, effectively building a region of Changemakers. It was from here that #ChangeTheNow began.

Do Good to Do Well

#ChangeTheNow was created on the beliefs that small acts can lead to big change and collaborations can turn into largescale movements. We believe together students’, educators’ and communities’ ideas can spark systems shifts that make will make our communities greener, healthier, safer, stronger and more inclusive!

Will you join us in creating the positive change and contribute to 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals?

    The most important thing about ideas is not simply thinking about them, it is sharing and perfecting them. A very good idea needs teamwork to be developed in a better way. The opinions of a group analyze the strengths and weaknesses in an issue to find a more comprehensive solution.

    We decided to contact the people directly involved in our project issue, to break the bias we had and better understand the real problems that they are facing.

    it was important to set a topic that grouped all the individual interests. Also, it was important to understand the weaknesses and strengths of each one as an individual and of the group in general.

    answered "After completing this activity, what do you feel are next steps towards contributing to the community you care about?" 2021-11-20 16:49:42 -0800
    I need to observe and listen closely to what is happening around me in my community. I found myself having having a hard time even figuring out where my community and what is the good and the bad that it carries. I feel i’m always moving, never taking the time to observe and listen. I fear it is the case with many people in my community, there is an epidemic of lives centered around the ME without the perspective of ME as a part of WE, and this even for people wanting to contribute to positive change. I will try to seek out others perspectives instead of simply being open to receiving them.
