What would you change about the world if you could?
For the What Would You Change article writing competition, from April to May 2011 ActNow sought out young people living in Australia who are 14-25 to write articles about the issues in the world that they care about, and to put forward their ideas for change. By submitting their articles, they were able to raise awareness about the issues they care about, and help create discussion about it in the online community.
Five of the top articles were chosen to be published at Wangle.com.au - a leading WA current affairs and lifestyle news website, whose authors include prominent activists, politicians and public figures from the Australian community.
Plus, the people who participated actively in the ActNow community during the six week period went in the draw to win one of two SONY DSC-W150 Digital Cameras!
