I have the feeling that sometimes we lose perspective when we became adults. It’s not easy to have a real commitment with what we consider a social problem but at the same time we are aware is the only possible way. And sometimes you find videos like this one where a young environmentalist tell her mother how he feels about adults and what we are doing to the planet. Impossible not to feel a little bit ashamed…
Be the change you want to see in the world. This is the one and only reason because we started delivering the Active Citizens programme. Thanks to British Council, we can deliver different trainings were the participants have the opportunity to learn from expertise on the field how to create your own social project. If you want to know more about Active Citizens or join in, you can come to our lovely free dinner on Thursday in our office and share thoughts with us. The new Active Citizens will start again this summer.
The Active Citizens programme aims to:
Bring together people in Glasgow passionate about making a difference in their communities
Help them understand their own cultural identity and give them skills for working with others from different backgrounds
Help them gain the skills, contacts and experience to create their own Social Action Projects
Support them with mentorship and pointers towards funding to help turn their ideas into a reality
Build their connections to other people in communities across the world
For more information, contact us.
You can gain a qualification too!
