As part of the Perspectives on Peace initiative, Marc Kielburger was invited to speak at McMaster University’s Convocation Hall last week.

As a co-founder of Free the Children, an international charity and educational partner that empowers youth to become global citizens and agents of change, Kielburger provided an inspirational message to McMaster students and members of the Hamilton community that was centered on the Me to We philosophy.

Me to We is essentially moving one’s focus from the individual, to others and the community at large. With the hopes of fostering positive social change, Kielburger encourages people to take any action they can, however small it may be.

It might begin with leaving a kind note for a coworker, taking a slightly shorter shower, or occasionally shopping fair trade. As Kielburger reminded us with one of Mother Theresa’s famous quotes,”Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.”

If you were unable to attend the lecture, you can still check out some highlights by listening to our short interview with Kielburger prior to his talk on the sound clip below.
