The antidote to apathy is not what you think…

Check out this short video about some of the barriers our society perpetuates re: community involvement, activism, and having those tough, much needed conversations.

Talking activism at Trent U

One thing I realized after speaking with some great people is that there are different ways to stay active in causes without ‘having to do something’.

Staying informed about the things you care about is one way to make change. Simply by the ideas being present in your mind, you are creating solutions and your actions will reflect that. 

You don’t need to be 100% engaged to make a difference – sometimes the small things add up to something much greater.
