“You don’t have to grow up to be a full agent of change, you can push for social change regardless of your age, your background... because that’s the only thing that’s achieved change in the past”

 

For our fourteenth episode,  Asanga Seneviratne and Yaz Naji sit down with Michaela Bethune, Head of Campaigns at DoSomething.org, an organisation dedicated to activating young people to create social change by engaging them in online campaigns to spur offline action. Together they discuss how to best create a social change campaign, the power of campaigns in turning passion into action, listening to the needs of young people rather than treating them as a commodity, working with corporates to increase your impact, the importance of research and the need to always promote awareness with action.

Show Notes:
