Description

Generation Next: Becoming Socially Enterprising  opens the door to the possibilities of social enterprise, harnessing students’ idealism and desire to ‘make a difference’. The book is organised around three key questions: Why should I care?, What could I do?, and What should I know? and provides an overview of issues, theories and practical knowledge that enables students to understand the world of the 21st Century and to be equipped to participate as active citizens. It explores the key themes of social justice, human rights and cultural awareness through practical, real life Australian/Pacific case studies.
