How do you make a difference?

In this video, we hear from people across Bristol about the many ways in which individuals can make a change in the world.

There are many ways we can all make a difference in the world, whether big or small.

It’s normal to feel like any attempt you make towards creating a change would be insignificant. However, it often takes a lot of small actions, as well as people with different types of interest or expertise coming together, to make a true difference.

As Mahatma Gandhi is reported to have said,

“In a gentle way, you can shake the world.”

Watch the video, think about what is said, and add some thoughts to the comments:

  • In what ways are the people you see in the video making a difference to the world around them?
  • What ways appeal to you and why?
