It’s easy to be overwhelmed by the world’s problems, but there is so much we can do! The DIY guide is here to help you work out what’s important to you and what you can do about it.  In order to effectively view an issue and create change, it is useful to consider the 3 ‘A’s: Awareness, Analysis and Action.  The DIY guide increases your awareness about some key issues; encourages you to analyse and gain a deeper understanding of these issues, by asking questions, thinking critically and making links; and helps you start making a plan for action.

It is written by young people cos we are out there doing it…and we want some more friends!  It takes you through the 3 'A's and looks at six key concerns that were identified by young people around the country, including discrimination, health, work, violence,  the system and the environment.  It also gets you to start thinking about your role in the global community and what your rights and responsibilites are as a global citizen.

It’s really just a few ideas to add to your own toolbox for change.

So get out there, get into it and get involved!
A, kia kaha, kia tu maia, kia manawanui.
