Awareness days can be an excellent source of inspiration when thinking about how to link your expedition with your life back at home. Several of them tie in with Raleigh’s programmatic themes of water and sanitation, community resilience, natural resource management and youth leadership; themes which you will have been directly involved with during your placement.
Awareness days can draw others in as they offer a great reason to be talking about topical issues and explaining why they are so important, not just to you but to millions of people around the world. We’ve selected some of the most relevant awareness days happening this year and suggested examples of how you can use them to your advantage, joining the global community in bringing about positive change. Once the day is over, keep the momentum up by inspiring others to get involved in raising awareness too.
