What were we looking for?

Now, more than ever, young people just like you are the real change makers. We asked you to show us what taking action and driving change means to you! It could have been a photo capturing your campus student politics, an image catching your experiences with volunteering or an exchange programme, getting involved in advocacy work for a cause you believe in, a picture of you and your friends taking part in a local community project.
