Are you a changemaker? Do you want to be? Do you want to help someone else get there?
Sixties activists insisted the personal is political. Changemakers in the digital age get that idea, and one-up it with another rallying cry: the political is social and cultural. Drawing on this knowledge, the 10 Questions for Young Changemakers framework is built around different strategies to engage peers, audiences, and allies in high-quality, equitable, and effective participation in digital-age civics, activism, and politics. The framework actively supports the secure development of student identities as participants in public spheres, so that civic and political engagement today doesn’t harm or haunt you later, but is productive and intentional.
The 10 Questions for Young Changemakers is a project within the Democratic Knoweldge Project (DKP). Learn more about the DKP here: https://www.democraticknowledgeproject.org/
