The Changemakers Issue

Welcome to "THE CHANGEMAKERS ISSUE" ️️

As Twenty Fine Tween closes out and brings in the new, our focus is on the being 'The Change We Wish to See In the World' (Ghandi).

Greta Thunberg as well as many other amazing young people have made waves in the press this year. And there's now a zeitgeist underway: a greater faith in the power of the individual to make a difference - and to potentially even 'change the world'! #PrettyIsAsPrettyDoes after all right??!

As Champions of Tween Spirit we couldn't be more thrilled. Big Dreams; Passion; Purpose; Self-belief; and Togetherness is what we're all about.

So to honour this topic and inspire your New Year's view, we've sought out both Tween and Adult Changemaker legends - each in their own spheres - for a sneak peak behind the curtain of the WHY behind their quests and HOW they have achieved what they have.

PLUS we've all the usual Wellness Hacks, Seasonal inspo and fun added extras like our Playlists; Art + Book reviews; RPK Furry Friends Fan Club; Food Ideas and "Tweens At Home" documentaries you'll find in each of our quarterly Zine drops.

EnJOY, Change Makers. Here's to a future so bright it hurts our eyes! (Oprah) Happy Holidays + Happy New Year from me, the SQUAD and the entire Galactic Team at RPK,

Many thanks

What we consume + how we consume it are the questions of the age. With globalisation the connections that bind us are tightening. Our accountability's greater. What we do affects our neighbour. And their choices affect us. But CONSIDERED choices could also be our greatest source of evolutionary strength. Conscious Citizen Co Editor JO Lorenz provides her exclusive interview and Tween inspo here. Changemakers read on.
