Can One Person Really Make the World a Better Place?

In these, for lack of a better word, weird times that we’re living in, it’s normal to feel as useless as Limewire after Spotify took over the world. We see you: you want to contribute to making the world a better place, but you have no clue where to start or if your actions even matter.

Whether you want to make a difference with your personal carbon footprint or be part of major social change, your actions do matter. The key is not to focus on perfection or get hung up on the size of your actions. You don’t have to lead a revolution to make the world a better place.

Small actions can make a big impact, but even more important are focused actions. In other words, get your head in the game, Wildcat.

Thinking about all of the world’s problems will leave you overwhelmed and pessimistic. Instead, focus on your community. What changes do you want to see where you live? How can you help? Look up volunteer opportunities that align with your interests.

Next, have encouraging (read: non-shaming) conversations with your friends. Your actions can influence them and cause a ripple effect in your friend group. Lead by example instead of publicly guilting them for buying their coffee in a disposable cup.

Feels like there’s another way to make a difference but we can’t quite put our finger on it...

Oh right! You could apply for a social impact job. Just an idea. Not like we’re biased about that or anything.
