#6: World changing

Image by Amore Caterina

Research and write a profile of a person who is changing the world in some small way.

If at all possible, interview the person.

When you’re done:

Post it to your WordPress site with an appropriate headline and CC-licensed image.

If you’re feeling brave, share the post link to our section Facebook group with the hashtag #ContentChallenge.

Need some help getting started?

Not sure who to profile?
Have a look for some inspo:

Talk to someone for their ideas:

    • It’s an excuse to call someone you haven’t for a while, or to start a different type of conversation with someone you talk to all the time.
    • Ask … Who inspires them? Who is changing things in their corner of the world?

Look locally:

    • Who is organising local action groups (or campaigns, or festivals, or…)?
    • Is there a local politician making an impact?
    • Who is running local community groups?
    • Local papers, radio stations, council sites, even signs on the street poles are a good place to start.

Look online:

    • Use hashtags such as #dogood #giveback #socialgood #4change to research causes and topics you’re passionate about.
    • Follow the internet wormholes. Sometimes one click leads to another, which leads to a great story!

Not sure how to approach someone for an interview?
Check their social media accounts. Choose the platform that they’re most active on, and just be bold – ask them if you could ask them a couple of questions for this article you’re writing.

Remember: people who are trying to change the world are usually incredibly passionate about whatever they’re doing.

That means that they’re keen to talk about it!
