This stream is designed for students who are passionate about envisioning a fair and just world or wanting to become a leader of global change. Human rights principles and theories of social justice will be explored, as well as a number of specific local and global issues affecting the world today such as youth homelessness, poverty, and gender inequality. World-class leaders in social justice will lead highly interactive workshops and discussions, and guest speakers will provide a firsthand account of their struggles to achieve the same freedoms afforded to the majority. A walking street tour will explore the prevalence and impact of youth homelessness in Melbourne, and excursions to William Ricketts Sanctuary and CERES Community Environmental Park are designed to give students a greater appreciation of the need for social change and the realisation that it just takes one person to make a small yet significant difference in the world.
