I'm Living Below the Line in 2022...

Because I am acting for people and planet.

I believe in empowering young people in leading, demanding and creating positive social change. By donating to my page, you will help support Oaktree’s partners and programs to empower young people in the fight against poverty and injustices, close to home and in the Asia-Pacific.

This year I will be participating by living below two lines: 

1. Food -  I will be eating entirely vegan for a week.

2. Waste - I will spend the week researching and producing a shareable infographic on how to properly recycle in Victoria. 

I love LBL 2022 because it takes the focus away from the difference between the 'Haves' and the 'Have-Nots', and focuses on how we can all act in solidarity with one another to end poverty and injustice.  

I have therefore chosen to participate in a way that focuses on the (unintentional) injustices that I myself contribute to every day. I want LBL to be a jumping off point that allows me to lead a more sustainable life.

Wish me luck!
