Come along to Our World Today on Saturday 17th Nov, to meet the 2012 'Young Social Pioneers' (as named by the Foundation for Young Australians).....the Young Social Pioneers are a group of inspiring change makers from around Australia! Collaborate with some of the brightest young minds, or even share your own projects, ideas and passion!
There will be a BBQ, drinks and lots of good company! Hope to see you there :)
Here is a snap shot of some of the pioneers:
Hayward Matthews; One Cent Movement. This innovative non-profit organisation turns everyday transactions into opportunities for donation. Purchases are rounded up to the nearest dollar, with 100% of the difference going directly to charity.
Jordan O'Reilly; Fighting Chance. Set up in memory of Jordan Riley’s father, Fighting Chance creates opportunities for people who face poverty, unemployment and social isolation, simply because they have a disability.
Linh Do; Speak Your Mind. Linh believes that advocacy alone won’t solve the world’s problems if the majority of the general public are unaware of them. Speak Your Mind aims to produce communications that further advocacy and to train young people in specialised, caused-based writing.
