Through the delivery of a multi-dimensional two stage program, Change Shapers aims to:
Young people to be engaged and active citizens by better understanding themselves, what makes them unique, their internal power and their potential to influence positive social change.
Positive social change by supporting young people to better understand power, the role of activism and innovation and to employ critical thinking skills when engaging with information and the media.
Communities of migrants and locals by creating opportunities for them to learn from one another, their diverse knowledge, skills and experiences and create life long connections.
Change Shapers is delivered through two stages, beginning with a two day in-person workshop where participants from a migrant and local community background are guided through four distinct stages, culminating in an ‘ideas incubator’.
Widespread dis-empowerment of young people, increasingly disconnected communities, mass population movements and an ever hardening political environment means never before has it been so important to take action.
We are fortunate to have a team of passionate and skilled individuals and organisations supporting Change Shapers, including our creative team, program facilitators, guest speakers and program partners.
