Whether you've undertaken Raleigh ICS or a Raleigh Expedition, we want you to lead the way in continuing to make a positive difference at home.
Having spent three months living and working with communities struggling to maintain their livelihoods places you in the perfect position to communicate a deeper understanding of how we can tackle global inequality and poverty together.
We will support you to share your experiences and act on the issues that you care about, so through your home action you not only raise awareness of development issues but you inspire others to take positive action too.
It may sound daunting initially but there are heaps of simple and engaging ways to get active. Whether you have half an hour or five, this is your one-stop shop for guides and inspiration.
Marcus Brent-Smith was a team leader for Raleigh ICS in Nicaragua. On his return home, he produced a short film as his action at home.
“I was shocked at the levels of rubbish when in Nicaragua. Although my community was beautiful and a wonderful place to live, in certain areas, there were drifts of plastic waste that were knee-deep. Plastic won't decompose for hundreds of years so its responsible disposal is a very important issue in my opinion.”
“When I returned to the UK, I decided to film myself living plastic free for a week. I hope through watching this film, I can engage as many people as possible to think differently about their own plastic waste and perhaps try to go plastic free themselves.”
