  2008 Young Victorian of the Year

Daniel Adams
 

  Daniel Adams is a change maker, social justice advocate, educator, innovator and project director. He was instrumental in organising the 2005 concert for the 'Make Poverty History' campaign, the largest youth-run event ever held in Australia. The concert united 24,000 people at live sites across Australia and reached an audience of 500,000. It is remarkable that someone who started out with no music industry contacts, event management experience, or financial backers could make an event of this magnitude happen, let alone sign up 50,000 young Australians to a commitment to fight poverty.

Since the concert Daniel has continued as a passionate advocate for social justice, channelling his energy into a new project; 'Schools 4 Schools', facilitating a direct link between schools and students in Victoria and Natal in a peer to peer leadership program.

He has inspired thousands of young people to actively engage in seeking solutions to world poverty.
