It’s all too easy to disengage ourselves from the problems of the world, to leave it to the politicians, big business and international agencies to do something.
All of us should believe that we can make a difference for the better through what we do and how we live our lives. Not only can lots of people doing lots of things make a difference, but by showing that we care, we can also influence those who have more power choose to effect change.
This is the idea behind the 365 Ways project which provides an issue and an idea for action to address that issue for each day of the year. The ideas and actions designed to be fun to do, whilst at the same time making a difference or increasing our understanding of the issue or giving us practical skills and lots of fresh ideas to take action for a better world.
There is one entry for each day of the year. The 12 themes are listed on the right.
“365 Ways to Change the World” will make a great present for couch potatoes as well as for people who want to go out and change the world. Facts, figures, issues, ideas, case studies: there’s lots in the book to inspire and inform. Buy lots of copies and spread the word – there are lot of simple and fun things that everyone can do to help make a better world!
