Students explore the concept of slacktivism (lazy activism) and share their views about the use of the internet for social change campaigns. They also research a famous social change campaign from 2012 and look at the steps that can transform a slacktivist to an activist. Lastly, they look at how they could plan a campaign to support one of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.Aims:
