Michael Crouch Innovation Centre UNSW
WE are the change.




  • Who we are

    We Act is a new student society at the University of New South Wales that represents Canadian non-for-profit, Free The Children. We believe in the ability of youth to right the social wrongs, so our aim is to cultivate a culture of giving by empowering young people with the skills and networks to lead social change.

  • Our vision

    Our goal is to shift perspectives from 'Me' to 'We' by communicating the power of collaboration, as opposed to competition, in creating such change. Our main annual event will be 'Mini We Day', where powerful and inspirational stories connect established change-makers with passionate young people to kickstart another year of impact.

    OCTOBER 4 - We Act Presents: Mini We Day 2016



    *Please register here for this FREE event: https://goo.gl/rKHdZ7

    If you’ve been enjoying our #weactforchange series, you won’t want to miss the event of the year - Mini We Day!

    Mini We Day is based on ‘We Day’, which began in Canada and spread to become an international movement aimed at motivating the youth of today to take action on issues prevalent in the world.

    Mini We Day at UNSW aims to bring together passion-driven students with social entrepreneurs and leaders of social change to ignite the Power of WE. During the event, you’ll be able to listen to stories of inspiration, courage and change, engage with real issues of today and use this as a platform to act on your passions and become a change maker in your own right with our networking session at the end.

    Our theme this year is ‘Growing from the Roots’, which will highlight how our speakers started to take action and the challenges they faced along the way. It is a fitting theme for our society, We Act UNSW, having to ‘grow from the roots’ ourselves as one of the newest student societies on campus.

    After the event, you will have the opportunity to approach our speakers, plus a variety of other social organisations from our community, in an informal networking event with free nibbles.
