ACTIVE-8! CAMPAIGN WINNER ANNOUNCED

Sabrina Andrews of Grand Falls-Windsor, NL inspired over 1000 commitments of action, becoming this year’s top Active-8! Ambassador. The Atlantic Council for International Cooperation (ACIC) would like to congratulate Sabrina on inspiring Atlantic Canadians to make our global community a better place.

The Active-8! Campaign was led by eight young Atlantic Canadians, who used their leadership in global social justice to inspire others to make commitments of action. Throughout February pledges came in from all around the globe, garnering over 3500 commitments to make the world a better place.

“The Active-8! Campaign was designed in the spirit of celebrating young global citizens in Atlantic Canada,” said Acting Executive Director of ACIC, Carolyn Whiteway. “Each of our Ambassadors has done outstanding work to engage their communities in the issues important to them. Through presentations to school and community groups and through the use of social media, people from all over the world were inspired to step up and declare their commitment to our global community.”

When asked what impact Active8 has had on her, Andrews responded “I am honoured to have been a part of the Active-8! Campaign. Being an Active-8! Ambassador was one of the greatest feelings. It has changed me because now that I have seen the impact that I can have, I will always strive to have that same impact and greater. My community means so much to me and being able to meet more of its members and have them tell me all of the things they are already doing and hearing what they are committing to do in the future was amazing.”

While Sabrina Andrews is being recognized for the number of actions she inspired, ACIC congratulates all of our inspiring youth leaders. ACIC is impressed with the work of this year’s team, and by the commitments of everyone who pledged on our site to make a positive difference in the lives of people everywhere.
