Start The Change Now
Have you ever just been lying in bed and thought I could do more with my life? Then this is the place for you
Committed to Excellence
So what is this Project About
How This Got Started
This project got started through some humble roots, and I want to keep its very personal and humble beginnings. I first thought of creating something like this at the end of my junior year in high school. The idea came to me when I was trying to figure what college I should go to and what to major in. through this process, I realized I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life which was hard for me because what I thought I wanted to be my whole life I didn't like. At the same time, I was trying to figure what to do for my life. The world was falling apart. All of this brought back memories from when I was little and wanted to help stop climate change and deforestation. I realized I still wanted to do this, but I didn't want to just help the environment; I wanted to help make the whole world better. I figured I could do this through my job, so I picked a major where I would be able to help people. I also decided on a college, and I was pleased with my decision, but I still had a deep urge to help people and the world now, so I created this project to connect people who also want to help make the world a better place.
What We Will be Doing for This Project
Helping Making the World a Better Place
Building a Community
The main goal of this project is to build a community of like-minded people, I think that no matter what you are doing or part of it is important to build a community around yourself. So that is why I want to start this project by building a network, and once the network is created, we can start brainstorming some ideas to help with some of the issues in the world.
What it Will be Like to be a Part of This Project
While building a community is great and important, this project was started to make the world a better place. This goal might seem easy, and it is on some level. Things as simple as picking up trash on the street or helping out someone who is struggling do make the world better, and I'm not saying these things can't change the world because they can. But the goal of this project is to make monumental changes, and this is not as easy. It takes a lot of work, commitment, resilience, planning, and time. It could be years until we are able to put together a successful campaign, and it could be even longer until we make some real change, and you have to understand this and be willing to put a lot of time and commitment into this project.
Starting a Campaign
You might be asking yourself how are we going to create monumental change in the world. To be completely honest with you, I have no idea this project is still on the community-building step. This is another reason why building a community is so important, so we can have a whole bunch of ideas on how to do things. The idea I am using right now is creating/starting campaigns that bring awareness to specific issues and trying to create change that can help lessen the issue or hopefully get rid of the issue altogether. But before we can create a campaign, we will have to start by brainstorming for probably weeks or months first to figure out what issue we should campaign against and then how we can lead a successful campaign that can bring about some real change.
Putting a Campaign to Use
So after we figure out a good issue to campaign for, we then have to figure out how to lead a successful campaign. We have to figure out what strategy to use for the problem so the campaign can be successful. For example, we can't use posts on social media for every campaign. While it is certainly the right way to combat some issues, it isn't the right way for all issues, and that is where all the brainstorming comes in. We need to find a solution for every issue and use that solution to attack the issues. I don't know yet what the solutions to the issues will be, but they will probably be a wide range of things. You might be wondering what some of the issues we will be combatting are, and again I am not entirely sure yet. I know I must seem like I have no idea what I'm doing, and in a way, I don't, which is why I want to build the community. I know the basics, but I need help in making the world better. While I don't know all the issues, we will deal with them. I want to start with climate change and inequality around the world. I will explain both a little more in a blog. I will also be starting by the name Start the change now blog.
What to do if You Want to Join This Project
Just put your email and name if you want in the get in touch box below
If you have read everything I wrote already, first of all, good job, I probably wouldn't of. I would probably skim the top think, hmm, interesting, and then move on with my life. I mean, it was bad enough to create. But on a more serious note, if you read through it and it seemed like something you would like to be a part of then fill out the get in touch box below. You just have to fill in your email and name if you want to. I am just going to use email to communicate. At least for now, if the community really grows, then I might rethink how communication will work. Not to say it won't be great if this community grows so much that email will no longer be an option. The goal is to have people all over the country and world, hopefully making the world a better place.
Also, if you are interested in this project and want to do more than joining, feel free to connect me and let me know I would love it if I had people helping me run this project. There is a lot of stuff I don't really know how to do. For example, don't if you notice, but I really don't like writing, and I'm not that good at it. So if you are a great writer or great at something else you think could help, please connect me. Also, I am still in college, so I have a lot on my plate, so any help is welcome
