Today, Tuesday, February 11, 2014, is the anniversary date of Nelson Mandela’s 27 years in prison. Mandela made a true and lasting impact in many individuals’ lives. He was a true difference maker in his community, country, and around the world.
The anniversary made one3ag reflect on the #beadifferencemaker campaign – a campaign to urge every individual to make a difference, regardless of perceived size, each and every day.
one3ag – a social enterprise that works with socially conscious organizations and individuals to continue making the world an even better and happier planet for all 7 billion citizens of the one and only planet earth. An organization that works daily to inspire members (current and future) of the one3ag community to be a difference maker.
An only community that lives at one3ag.ca.
To better communicate what exactly is one3ag, we have borrowed the idea, a picture is worth a thousand words. Also, as an introvert, I am not necessarily one for words. I will allow the below one3ag images to try to better communicate what it is one3ag aims to accomplish daily.
Education is the corner stone of a vibrant community. We don’t just mean sitting in a classroom from 9-3 during the week. Education means so much more than in-class knowledge memorisation.
Is any individual better than another? one3ag says no. To better understand our values, beliefs, needs and wants, the practice of reflecting on our experiences provides a great avenue for fostering our self-awareness and -management.
Communities are the hubs of our childhood, education, development, socialization, and sense of belonging. An individual’s self-identified community may be physical (e.g., a collection of streets and households), or more abstract (e.g., the Muslim community in a Western city). To ensure vibrant, healthy and sustainable communities, social networks and relationships are essential to fill the needs of the social creature that is a human being. From friends, family, colleagues,to complete strangers – one3ag thinks communities are of vital importance to the health, well-being, and happiness of all individuals.
