We need ChangeMakers. I care about the world my grandchildren will have 40 years from now and I believe together we can do something about it.
Today violent weather storms, school shootings, routine terrorism, new diseases, and income insecurity are symptoms of a disease. When I talk with scientists and thought leaders, they see these symptoms as a cancer that is invading our vital organs. This cancer is invading our natural systems, our economic systems, our cultural systems and our political systems. These are the vital organs of a healthy world.
They see our world in peril. They see the solution as ordinary people putting on their ChangeMaker’s hat. ChangeMakers are the people who lead our community cultures from taking a lot and giving back a little to a giving forward society where we put back as much as we take. These experts say our world can no longer sustain taking more than we give.
We can ignore them. After all, right now most of our personal lives are still pretty good. But what are the lives of our children and grandchildren going to be like 40 years from now?
We can hope or we can do something about it. Yes -the problems are big. But collectively we the change makers can make a difference. And the bonus, actively doing something about it makes us feel good.
When we build our businesses, choose our jobs, participate in our communities and engage socially by giving forward in a way that builds sustainable communities, we change the course of our world and we are happier. We live in happier communities and we feel the deep satisfaction of doing something important. If enough of us decide to make these kinds of choices – it will be enough.
We are here to help you know what you can do as a ChangeMaker and how to do it in practical ways.
Together we can reshape our world.
