Think globally, act locally -> Start your project for social change today

http://www.payandbenefitsmagazine.co.uk/pab/files/imagecache/article_image/images/International_benefits.jpg

We, i.e., individuals and organizations around the world, face unprecedented social, economic, ecological, and political challenges. Worse, we can expect these challenges to multiply in the next decades we must confront them. What’s needed are new and fresh ideas to tackle and solve today’s and tomorrow’s challenges.

There are thousands and thousands of new ideas how to confront these challenges.  And yet, most of these ideas remain just that: ideas, figments of our imagination, remote from reality. This raises the questions: if we have so many ideas, why don’t we do more with them? What is necessary to follow up on them and put them to work? What’s holding us back?

AND how can we translate global concepts into local projects?
