Make Poverty History is on a national search for young leaders passionate about making a difference.
This May over 1000 people aged 16-26 will take to the road to MAKEPOVERTYHISTORY. Leaving from every capital city these ambassadors for global change will travel across the country, journeying throughout over 100 different cities and towns.[vimeo http://vimeo.com/7516187]
At schools, businesses, churches, community organisations and sporting clubs we’ll spread one message: that poverty can be ended, if only we have the will.
In newspapers, magazines, radio interviews and television stunts we’ll speak with one voice: our generation can be the one to end extreme poverty.
After 5 days each road trip will arrive in Canberra – for a national summit of young leaders. Over the course of two days these young people will hear from federal politicians, community leaders and community organising experts. They will be left will all the knowledge, motivation and skills to be a leader of change in their own communities.
If you think you know any young people between the ages of 16 and 26 who may be appropriate, then please see attached for further information on how you can nominate them and promote the opportunity. Alternatively head to www.theroadtrip.com.au for more information.
