Today there are an estimated 700 million to 1 billion people and 3–4 million collectives who, each in their unique way, are working for a better world. As Paul Hawken, ecologist, activist and writer, noted, “This is by far the most diverse mass movement of people, the world has ever seen. But it’s almost silent, it’s disunited, it is disconnected.” It has no presence on the global stage.
We need to find ways to unite, connect and harness the energy and will-to-act, creating a ‘tour de force’ and a snowball effect to help drive change. But the way we have solved most challenges in the past is no longer working, so we need a new updated approach. And when leaders are not listening, the people have to step up and get involved.
