A few words about
Cultural change: education, empowerment
& critical thinking
To change culture, we must change mindsets.
Change doesn’t happen overnight, it’s a process that requires engaging with the culture around us in a positive way. That’s why we’ve created programs to engage with the next generation. Information is power, and we’re equipping them with the information they need when they’re making their choices.
And we’re engaging with older generations, too, because we have the power the make a difference, when we know how.
'Our Perspectives' Schools Program
This program seeks to engage secondary school students in respectful conversations and critical thinking around often debated or hard to talk about topics, including unplanned pregnancy and pregnancy options.
We create a safe environment in which students are able to unpack current discourses and challenge the status quo, and where they are encouraged to think critically about cultural norms and lived realities.
Our trained facilitators deliver the program sensitively, drawing on the expertise and knowledge gained by the organisation’s over twenty years of experience working at the coalface of these issues.
'Our Perspectives' next-gen program
We facilitate discussions with youth in various contexts around topics we connect with regularly in our work.
We focus on thinking skills, logical principles and ethical veracity while encouraging the scrutiny of norms and the development of values that encourage mental well being and integrity.
Our team is available to lecture or speak at gatherings or meetings including at tertiary institutions, business breakfasts, conferences and seminars, churches and women’s or men’s groups etc.
We can tailor the message depending on your audience and the objectives of your meeting.
We can include content of your choice from any of our programs and we offer a lecture format, or small group discussions and a Q&A panel as an interactive approach to discussing sensitive topics around pregnancy, pregnancy options and relationships.
We welcome enquiries from organisations and individuals that would like to partner with us and present Perspectives locally and further afield.
We are committed to providing education that promotes synergy between knowledge, values and lived experience.
