Take a look at our delivery partners and see if you can volunteer to help with one of their social action projects.
Follow the Active Citizens principles
Think about what it means to be an Active Citizen
Try to hold your assumptions lightly. We make assumptions all the time. These assumptions influence our behaviour and actions, which can be positive or have negative consequences. We do not always have to think about our assumptions, but reflecting on them may help us to change our behaviour and actions.
