Connect with other students; share, learn and chat.
Hi! We have a button for you... I know, exciting... but seriously, when you see it you will actually hire a megaphone and go to your nearest roundabout and start telling people about it. It is THAT GOOD!
We're collecting the stories around people's 3things. We want to hear from you so we can connect students around Australia. Why is that so important we hear you ask? Well firstly, that's the feedback - you want to hear from each other in a setting that isn't formal and is just about what each other has been up to when doing good, positive stuff.
Also, without stories, you can't check out what each other have been doing with your friends, at school, at home, online and ultimately in the world.
And lastly, if you've ever been stuck for an idea, hearing other people's stories can un-stuck you. So enough from adults telling you what to do, tell each what's going on by clicking on the button. Eas-e.
PS: We always get in touch you before we put anything up on our 3things site just in case you want help with writing something, maybe you need some feedback or have questions. That's what we're here for- to support you and celebrate what you're doing. Below are a bunch of ideas that might inspire you.
- A couple of paragraphs of how you started to waste less food,
- A description of a clothing exchange you might have run,
- What you did with money you fundraised and how you fundraised,
- What you think about something you learnt in class
- A photo of you and your friends shopping at the local op-shop,
- A photo of a poster or artwork you designed to raise awareness about refugees,
- How, where and why you buy Fairtrade chocolate,
- about your recycling project at work
- A link to an animation you created on human rights.
- Song lyric,
- The can be your ideas on any issue
- Anything that tells us how you're making small or medium or big changes to your everyday life.
While your actions alone may seem small, together our collective actions have a massive flow-on effect, and can help improve the lives of people living with poverty and injustice.
So whether you've been taking photos, creating art, playing sport, recycling, have done a wicked assignment, raising money, writing, Facebooking, running events or the hundreds of other small, but important actions tell us something we don't know.
Remember - it doesn't have to be big or perfect, it just needs to be about you and your life, so you can't go actually wrong...
