Social action

“No-one is too small to make a difference” – Greta Thunberg

You have the power to make a difference in the world, in all kinds of ways.

Big or small, loud or quiet, everything you do can create change to your life, and the lives of other people around you.

We are creating a Manifesto of Compassion!

Over 3 days our creative cohort and 24 other creative young people are taking over the Egg Theatre in Bath. They will be joined by artists and guided through fun activities to think about how we can make the world a kinder place and support each other through times of change.

There will be plate-smashing, map-making, sculpture, writing, audio-creating, social action and more – all of which will generate our Manifesto of Compassion, which we’ll share here at the end of the year.

This event, running over October half-term, is aimed specifically at year 6 and year 7 students wanting to make positive change in their world. If you are interested in finding out more, please get in touch at room627@bathmind.org.uk.

What is a manifesto?

A manifesto is a statement by a person or group of people, declaring their views, intentions or motives. It is a way of asking people to join together to take action and change something.

Why it’s important

Together we are stronger. When we all come together in a sharing of ideas, intentions and motives, we can make real change in the world.

Our manifesto

Throughout the Room 627 project, we’re collecting pledges, beliefs and intentions from young people about how we can – and will – make the world a kinder and more compassionate place. These will all come together and create our Manifesto of Compassion, which will be showcased later in 2022 at the Egg Theatre and beyond.

Our manifesto:

  • Will be decided and created by young people
  • Seeks a world that is kinder, more connected and joyful
