What sort of change would you like to see in the world?

I would like to see the 'labour' of social change reject the conditions of industrial society- ideally we could facilitate a merge of the public/private, place more emphasis on care and community well-being, and experience more enjoyment of work.

What are you doing to achieve it? Are you working with a particular organisation or group? Are there any projects you're working on that you'd like to share?

At the moment I'm educating myself and up-skilling although I frequently assist groups and individuals with their activism by providing facilitation and wellness support.

What are your favourite organisations, projects or campaigns that are making a positive impact in the world?

Cicily Saunders- founder of the modern Hospice movement. Compassion and unique expertise saw Cicily lead and develop one of the most important social movements of the 20th and 21st centuries. It is also impressive given that she was a woman in a field that was (and still is) deeply hierarchical and male-dominated (modern medicine).

Introduction

Originally from a psych/sociology background, I am interested in learning the practical skills for the work of social change and activism. Currently, I am a student of the Group Work Institute and have been working as a facilitator pro-bono.
