Ten Ways to Change the World in Your Twenties
Ten Easy to Read Chapters. Hundreds of Easy to Implement Solutions
Throwing a party. Preparing a meal. Sending an email. These are things you do all the time. How can they really make a difference? Ten Ways to Change the World in Your Twenties shows how to transform these everyday activities into world-changing events.
There are nearly 15 million college graduates in the United States between the ages of 20 and 30. While many of these people leave college with both the idealism and energy necessary to improve the world in which they live, they often lack the resources and guidance to do so efficiently and effectively. There are 25 million families in the United States with children under the age of eighteen. While many parents want their children to develop a sense of social and environmental responsibility, finding simple lessons to impart on a daily basis can prove daunting in the face of parenthood's many challenges. Yet, there already exist hundreds of organizations, businesses, and individuals committed to causes such as sustainable living, affordable health care, fair trade, green energy, socially responsible investing, corporate responsibility, and humanitarianism.
Ten Ways to Change the World in Your Twenties is the first book to bring these resources together and to offer the next generation of leaders simple and tangible ways to make the world they are inheriting a better place.
Our generation and the next face a myriad of environmental and social problems, on both a local and global scale, which are already affecting our quality of life. Ten Ways is designed to offer both practical, easy to implement suggestions for tackling many of these critical issues, as well as resources to help us connect with others already making a difference.
