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?

🤔 Reflection question
After completing CTN, what new awareness do you have for yourself (ME) and your community (WE) and what is one action you might take to continue to explore it?
After completing the Change the Now (CTN) program with an emphasis on SDG 11, I have a greater understanding of how urban growth and sustainability are intricately intertwined, both for me and for our larger community. Personally, I've learned to appreciate the necessity of forming greener habits and the possibility for individual deeds to have an overall influence on our communities. In order to bring about long-lasting beneficial change in our urban surroundings, I have come to understand the need of promoting collaboration among diverse stakeholders, from local government to community organizations. I intend to keep learning about this understanding, participate in frequent talks and seminars that promote sustainable living, and attend neighborhood planning meetings to make sure that sustainable development is a top priority for the neighborhood.
