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?

    What did you personally learn about the process of creating your team canvass?

    Nikhil's Answer

    The process of creating a team canvass help to get to know teammates about their views and vision. It helped us to know about the individual qualities and strengths and the individual differences among all the team members. We also learnt that even with these differences, we can work together as an effective team by using the other team members' strengths and together, we can work progressively to make a difference.

    🤔 Reflection question

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

    Girish's Answer

    I would personally say that, through this mobius strip activity, I was able to identify my own strengths and the values that I need to focus on. I was also able to identify the social issues and the challenges that the communities and societies going through. Based on this activity I found out that most youths are facing joblessness and an increased rate of unemployment in the society. According to me, these are some of the major issues that majority of the countries are facing right now. It will be really great, if we can find a proper solution and understand the problems faced by the young generation and provide a solution for them would create a great way for the future generations too.

    Siddharth's Answer

    I personally felt that the Mobius Strip activity is an opportunity that can enable to widen our perspective towards our community. Just like we give importance to selfcare we should try to put in efforts to understand the people and community around us too. I believe mental health awareness and support is the aspect that should be given predominant importance as we are living in a busy world where everything is timebound and it is quite common to vision people with mental pressure. We should try to view people like such just as someone who's in our family.

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

    Ann Maria's Answer

    The Mobius Strip exercise has helped me to learn more about the community and also about the changes that we can make in the community. i was able to identify the social issues that our community is facing and the major strengths of our community. poverty, homelessness and health care, both physical and mental should be given importance since many people are suffering due to these issues. according to me, homelessness is one of the most significant issues faced and should be solved since a safer place to live is a basic need for every human being.

    Through team canvas I was able to understand different abilities of each team member, as a team we all have different values, skills, strength and weakness. It also help us to understand the roles of each member to be assigned and also can help each other.
