Social change is defined by the significant alteration of social structure and cultural patterns. This unit will examine the political influence and communication techniques used to effect meaningful social change, including the rise of social media. You will identify and explain key elements of the democratic process in Australia including relationships between the three levels of government and will critique an example of an effective social change campaign. From this in-depth analysis you will further extend and develop key socially innovative communication techniques applicable to future social change events.
