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?

    Kevin's Answer

    Participating in this activity helped me understand how my personal goals, community objectives, and team goals intersections. Also it gave me a better understanding of my own skills and how they contribute to the team's success. Overall, the activity was an amazing experience that provided valuable insights into navigating my goals with some introspection. No doubt this was my second time doing this activity but I feel every time it gives me a new perspective

    After completing the Mobius Strip exercise, what do you feel are next steps towards contributing to the community you care about?

    Lisa Marie's Answer

    The Mobius Strip activity helped me identify and connect my strengths, problems, and attributes with myself and the community. I think the next step I can do to contribute to the community is to understand the issues around me and advocate for what I believe in. I think starting with myself and creating a voice for the community can greatly impact the world for a better cause.

    Kavindu Elroy's Answer

    The exercise made me realize articulate who i am as a person and the issues that i am passionate about , and helps me question how i can use my strengths to positively contribute to the community issues that i have mentioned along with the attributes that i think i need to develop. I strongly feel that being a motivator and an active listener i can be of incredible help in campaigning/ creating awareness for community safety and chart measures to bring awareness about food miles
