Actions By Young People for Social
are sophisticated and simple; powerful and
are broad categories of actions young people are taking in order to
change society. Each page provides a summary and features many
resources, including examples, websites, and publications.
The Freechild Project has identified
these categories through "guerrilla" research, meaning that we go into
the communities where these activities happen and work with young
people and adults to identify what is going on. The phrase "young people" is
to include children and youth, from the time of birth through 8, 12,
14, or 16, through "adulthood," which could mean 18, 21, 25, or 30, depending
on who you are and what you're doing.
All of these action categories were
chosen because they create "social change"; we don't include
activities that are not intended to challenge, examine, create,
reflect upon, or otherwise change society.
