Developing a social awareness project involves identifying the issues, highlighting barriers to the solutions and profiling some workable solutions, especially those that have been accomplished. Incorporate plenty of visual images and even some video interviews into your project. Audiovisual equipment is often available from your local public library.
A social awareness project focusing on poverty is one research theme. Solidify your research project and ensure it focuses on a specific theme related to poverty. Poverty affecting seniors, children or immigrants are some specific project ideas. Other poverty-related social awareness projects include international poverty in a particular region of the world, such as Africa or India.
Affordable housing is another social issue. Focus your project on affordable housing issues such as rental rates for seniors, the cost of mortgages for young families or interest rates on housing for the disabled. Another project idea is a profile of successful affordable housing projects, such as the Habitat for Humanity program that has helped thousands of North American families access a new home through an affordable mortgage.
Health is a big issue for all societies, regardless of where you live. Affordable drug plans, the impact of cancer on rural communities and the impact of cancer on young families are some ideas for a health-centric social awareness project. The health costs for private-versus-public care is a comparison project idea.
The ethics of new technology and privacy rights related to technological advancements are other social awareness project ideas. Interview leading technological entrepreneurs in your community and city or present a profile of how technology is benefiting the local community and improving lives. This type of project also intersects with other themes such as housing, health care and poverty.
