Why We Must & How We Can
Why We Must & How We Can
Since we founded We Make Change, I have had the opportunity to connect with thousands of people across the world who want to make change happen. I have been inspired by our generation, but also been troubled by it. I have met many people who feel helpless to make the change they want to see. This means that many do nothing. Yet the challenges we face are more urgent than ever.
Every generation is called upon to address the greatest challenges of their time. The suffragettes fought to give women the right to vote in Britain, civil rights activists fought for equal rights in the United States, and independence advocates across Africa fought for the end of colonial rule. It comes to our generation to address the challenges of our time.
We are the first generation that can end extreme poverty and the last that can address climate change. We are also the largest, most connected, and most highly educated generation ever. The challenges we face are larger than ever, but the opportunities we have are greater than ever. If we are to address the challenges of our time, we must unite as a generation to solve them. That is why we started #MakeChangeNow.
#MakeChangeNow is a movement to unite our generation to make the change we want to see. We are harnessing the power of technology to enable anyone, anywhere to join the movement. We will empower members to use their skills to support the causes they care about through projects from NGOs and social enterprises across the world on the We Make Change Platform.
This movement has grown from a few volunteers with an idea to a community of over 10,000 ChangeMakers in more than 100 countries across the world. It transcends national borders, political parties and philosophical beliefs by uniting people behind the common causes they care about. We already have National Teams in 10 countries uniting our generation in their countries to be part of this global movement.
We simply cannot wait to act. Because every day that goes past the challenges the world faces become harder to address. That is why your journey to making the change you want to see starts now - by joining the movement.
Sign up by Monday 16th September, before the United Nations General Assembly meets, to become part of the generation that makes the change we want to see.
Together, let’s #MakeChangeNow.
