ABOUT

Who is the Social Change Collective?

The Social Change Collective was formed in 2017 by a group of young Wellingtonians who wanted to be more informed of social issues and wanted to work together to create actionable solutions. The committee of eight people consists of lawyers, policy analysts and entrepreneurs. They see the potential in their peers to engage with the range of issues facing the world today.

How do we operate?

Every second month we run an event on a particular social or environmental issue, ending with a list of “actions” for attendees to sign up to.

We also support young people to participate in governance across New Zealand. See the Board Opportunities page to learn more and get involved.

ADVISORY BOARD

Pat Shepard

Founder and Chief Doer of Things, One Percent Collective 

Pat is originally from Scotland, having followed his love of skiing to Wanaka for three seasons before ending up in Wellington. He worked as a freelance photographer and graphic design tutor, developed the fundraising project The Good Karma Project, and eventually this led to the development of the Little Lotus Project. He founded the One Percent Collective in 2010, after reading work from philosopher Peter Singer, to encourage the growth of generosity by asking people to donate 1% of their earnings to charity. Pat always aims to inspire community members to join the generosity movement.
