Who are Humans in Geelong?
We aim to inspire!
We are a small team of ‘Not-for-Profit’ volunteers who report on the ‘good news’ stories of our home town Geelong, and the Greater Geelong area. The stories are about the everyday humans who are taking action, one way or another, and making a difference. This includes shedding light on causes, however small, that may not be covered in the mainstream media.
We got our inspiration from the Humans in Melbourne Facebook page and thought ‘Why not do something like that in Geelong?’.
We value Creativity, Empathy, Connectedness and Engagement.
Similar pages such as Humans in Melbourne and Humans of New York, are highly successful and bring the community together.
We’re 11 months old, have over 5,900 followers, and have told over 120 stories.
