I met with Guy Ryan the evening before last (Tuesday), the CEO of the Inspiring Stories Trust. The organisation aims to get every young New Zealander acting for positive change.
Last week they wrapped up one of their summer programmes successfully, were told they would be getting $500k from the NZ government over the next two and a half years, and then to complete the hat trick Guy won the Young New Zealander of the Year award last night!
I am so chuffed for him and everyone involved in Inspiring Stories. What they are doing is so incredibly, well, inspiring! And not only that, they really are creating waves of change, only set to continue and grow. Watch Guy’s TED talk for a great overview here: http://youtu.be/V0A001CdtdY
And see under my profiles page soon for a written round up of what they do.
