What do we care about?

There are lots of different ways to improve our communities. In fact there are so many that it’s best to start by just choosing one area or issue to focus on. When trying to figure out what to do, it helps to reflect on the things that matter to us.
Think through these questions for inspiration.
  • What do we care about?
  • What makes us angry?
  • What issues would we like to know more about?
  • What do we enjoy doing?
  • What are we good at? (Or what would we like to be good at?).

Here are a few examples of organisations who work to address a number of different issues. You can start by exploring what they are doing about the issue that matters most for you.
