#WalkTogether in your community

Thank you for being a Spark of Hope and joining the #WalkTogether campaign. This is a movement built around you! With the inspiration of your story, we’ve reached over 65 million people around the world on social media alone and millions more through activities and traditional media channels. To mark Nelson Mandela’s 100th year, The Elders will present all of the 100 Sparks of Hope on the platform towards the celebrations in Johannesburg and later in the year, to world leaders. Please help to showcase the momentum of this wonderful, hopeful movement by organising to #WalkTogether in your community.

A community #WalkTogether event is a way of showing the unity you create through the work you do. By undertaking a gathering in your community – whether it’s a special occasion you create, or just a short moment of solidarity in your daily work – by providing a visual demonstration through photo (or video!), you are providing invaluable support for the #WalkTogether campaign to show the positive impact your organisation has. We’ll use the material you provide to show world leaders 100 Ideas for a Freer, Fairer World grounded in your work and we’d like to collaborate with you to expand your influence through social media too.
