We bring the untold stories of everyday activists and volunteers – and show how YOU can bring about a positive change for your cause
How can living sustainably – and raising awareness about it in your community – look like? Would you like to organise a demonstration or start a national petition?
The team behind “European Heroes” believes that we all have the ability to affect change for the things we care about. Often this starts on a small scale, in our local communities and within our families.
So, let’s get to it! On this website you will find a series of articles explaining what different paths exist for metamorphosing from a “passivist” to an “activist”, someone working for a cause.
Among others, we will cover:
- The first steps for living a sustainable life
- How to promote gender equality around you
- A vegan starter’s guide
- How to fight against food waste
- How to start a nation-wide petition
- How to get involved in refugee help and integration of newcomers
Even if you are not planning to have a vegan diet or you are not interested in gender equality, many principles of volunteering, campaigning and change-making also apply to other fields of activism.
We hope you will enjoy the articles – and get inspired to, in Mahatma Gandhi´s words, “be the change you want to see in the world”.
