DAKtivism must begin with ourselves and our own selfcare, incl eating healthily, making time for exercise, and getting back hobbies and interests.
DAKtivism can change lives in schools, colleges and/or organisations. It includes "small" gestures including saying hello to others, and bigger gestures such as volunteering.
DAKtivism also includes care and respect for our environment. This may include reducing packaging and waste; protecting animals; and planting our own fruit or vegetables.
