“OVER THE YEARS I HAVE LEARNT A LOT ABOUT HOW TO MAKE HUMANITARIAN CHANGE HAPPEN, AND I’VE MET SO MANY AMAZING PEOPLE ALL PASSIONATE ABOUT CHANGING THE WORLD… BUT I THOUGHT, WOULDN’T IT BE GREAT IF HUMANITARIAN CHANGEMAKERS HAD A PLATFORM TO CONTINUE TO CONNECT WITH AND LEARN AND FROM EACH OTHER?”
And so, I’m excited to announce that I have created such a platform that I’ll be launching next month: The Humanitarian Changemakers Network.
The Humanitarian Changemakers Network provides an answer to something I’m frequently asked about across social media; “I want to make a difference in the world, but don’t know how.”
The humanitarian changemakers network is a network of changemakers, for changemakers, with a mission to increase the impact that humanitarian changemakers can make, by providing them with resources and a supportive community to help live consciously, engage in advocacy, get active and campaign for change, and be on the frontline of humanitarian initiatives and projects.
It is a platform of resources and tools covering things like: the sociology of social change, identifying different levels and types of social change within society, and how to achieve them.
This diagram outlines the four main types of social change, which forms the basis for the Humanitarian Changemakers Network:
The resources and tools on the platform that seek to help young people change the world are categorised according to the type of social change they seek to achieve:
These are, conscious living and inspiring collective action, engaging in advocacy, getting active and campaigning for change, and humanitarian community and international development projects and initiatives.
These are things I believe any changemaker should develop an understanding of, no matter what their specific interests are or what their level of experience is.
The platform will officially launch of the 1st March, and I can’t wait to continue to release more tools and resources to help people like you change the world. If you’re passionate about changing the world, give the Humanitarian Changemakers Network a follow on Instagram, and check out the website!
