About the Campaign
International Development Week 2013: ‘Active-8 Campaign’
Since 2010, the Atlantic Council for International Cooperation (ACIC) has annually brought together 8 young Atlantic Canadians who are an inspiration for all of us who dream of a better world.
Collectively those 24 young people – our ACTIVE-8! Global Youth Ambassadors – inspired 11,033 acts of generosity and hope: 11,033 acts that have changed the world.
ACTIVE-8! is a campaign inspired by the idea that each of us can make a difference: that small changes by individual Canadians can lead to BIG change for everyone, everywhere.
In February 2013, the ACIC will launch our 4th annual ACTIVE-8! online campaign by profiling the exciting and inspiring work of 8 young Atlantic Canadians, and we want to know:
Who will lead us in 2013?
We’ll show you what inspires them, how they take action, and how their work for a better world has filled their lives with joy and hope.
Then we’ll ask you – the average person – to let yourself be inspired and to let that inspiration lead you to take action too.
We hope you’ll join our ACTIVE-8! team in making change – in believing we can all play a part in making this world more livable, peaceful and joyful for everyone. Help us show the world that Atlantic Canadians care and are committed to making change together.
This project is undertaken with the financial support of the Government of Canada provided through the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA).
