Volunteers getting together, is cleverer

Individuals can inspire great social change, but its difficult to accomplish great things on your own.

I'm very excited about what might happen if more people, were to connect with others who might want to make a difference. The August 2011 riots that started in London, probably had many of us united by shock, fear and a feeling of wanting the disruption and chaos to stop. Many of us were only united by those things through the scenes on our TV screens. Things started to change, when people connected and then acted.

When I grow up, I want to be a volunteer

When I was growing up, I wanted to be a professional sports person. I wanted to sprint like Linford Christie or play professional 'soccer' in the USA. Now I realise that my 'work' and what I'm being is not solely about what I do to get paid. 

Rather, like many others, I contribute to the world through the unpaid ways that I choose to give my time and skills. Over the last 10 years of finding ways to help out, I've learned so much from giving my time as a telephone counsellor at ChildLine, coach educator at TackleAfrica, London 2012 GamesMaker and youth mentor at the Wilderness Foundation.

Ongoing economic recession, attendant social change and Government policies will continue to exercise the ingenuity of leaders in the social sector.

Calling all eco warriors

Fellowship: 2013

The Clore Social Leadership Programme is looking for aspiring leaders working in the UK environment sector. Here’s why I think the programme is relevant to all eco-warriors.

Leadership on the environment has never been more urgently needed. Earlier this month, it was announced that levels of CO2 in the atmosphere reached record levels and a joint report released today by UK conservation charities shows the disturbing decline in UK species. Yet political and media engagement in these issues is declining: the G8 group of the world’s most powerful political leaders will meet in Northern Ireland in early June, but the UK has refused to put climate change on the agenda.
