Who Is in Your Mob?

Welcome to the July edition of our Make a Change eNewsletter.


We include you in our mob! We are here to share with you inspiration, skills and support to make the change you want to see in your world! 


Pictured above are local Bendigo Changemakers who are participants in one of the first School of Social Entrepreneurs regional programs, made possible by  Make A Change.

Opening up networks to other changemakers is crucial to the success of the students who are taking a big leap into their new Enterprises.  In this month's Case Study for Changemakers Karen shares her insight into key elements to bring people together to ignite positive change.

Meet the changemakers out there on their bike at this month's Outside the Square with Bendigo a Cycling City.
