WELCOME TO THE SOCIAL DESIGN SITE

We cannot not change the world. Isn’t that odd?

We as individuals have social interactions everyday. We do not live alone on a deserted island. We cannot not be social. We should be aware of the fact that we have the opportunity to choose our actions in everyday life. We have the choice between following the same habits, customs and lanes we did in the past, or to change them. Every new day we could do things differently than we have done it before. For us this is social design.

Rather than telling you what social design is, we aim at providing you ideas, inspirations and insights on positive and engaging change. Here, you will have the chance to explore and share your work with the many other changing the world projects. How do you change the world? Share it here.

THE MISS LANDMINE MANIFESTO
(in no particular order)


* Female pride and empowerment.

* Disabled pride and empowerment.

* Global and local landmine awareness and information.

* Challenge inferiority and/or guilt complexes that hinder creativity-
historical, cultural, social, personal, African, European.

* Question established concepts of physical perfection.

* Challenge old and ingrown concepts of cultural cooperation.

* Celebrate true beauty.

* Replace the passive term 'Victim' with the active term 'Survivor'

And have a good time for all involved while doing so!

We are currently preparing the live Miss Landmine Angola 2008 pageant in close collaboration with the Angolan government (CNIDAH) and supported by the European Union. The crowning of the world's first Miss Landmine will be taking place in Luanda, Angola on April 4th, 2008, the UN International Day for Mine Awareness and Assistance in Mine Action.
