Thought of the Week - Who are you... in your community?

Theme: Who are you… in your community?


“People think that you have to do something huge to change the world, like go to Africa and build a school, but you can make a small change in a day. If you change Wednesday, then you change Thursday. Pretty soon it’s a week, then a month, then a year. It’s bite-size, as opposed to feeling like you have to turn your life inside out to make changes.”

Until you turn 18 years old there isn’t a great amount of choice of where you live. No one wants to live in a place where the streets are messy and people are horrible to each other do they? There is so much we can do to impact the places we live and there are also people who can help if we have an idea of how we can make our community a better place to live in.


  • Do you like where you live? Why?
  • Some things to find out… who is your local councillor? Who is the Lord Mayor of Exeter? Who is the MP of Exeter? – Do you know what the all do and why?
  • In groups discuss what 5 things you would like to see change in your community to make t a better place to live.
