We can all change the world a little.
If we work together, we can change a lot.
What do you think it takes to make a difference?
If you close your eyes, can you imagine a hero who could change our world for the better? Take a look at the Sustainable Development Goals for inspiration and for an idea of the things they might be fighting for. Now picture this character and imagine what they have to go through to achieve their goal.
They probably have to go on an adventure. Perhaps there will be huge obstacles in their way. There could be villains they need to evade, or quests they must accomplish. There could be unlikely friends along the way.
Can you picture it? Now try to write it!
