The idea behind small change is that we are all capable of changing the world around us on a daily basis.
After years of feeling confronted by the many injustices that I regularly witnessed, both locally and globally, I was keen to do something about them. So I decided to come up with a list of small changes I could implement in my own life that would simply make the world a better place. If this sounds naïve – even ‘twee’ – the alternative is that I do nothing and the poor continue to go hungry, the earth groans under the weight of our pollution, people are sold into slavery and unthinkable abuse prevails.
I started to think about the impact of just one change per week. What if that change became a habit and I encouraged my friends to do the same? And they encouraged their friends and their friends encouraged their friends… You see where I am going with this.
That year has come to an end but I continue to evaluate my habits, assess the practicality of my proposed changes and look out for ways to encourage others to make a difference.
I hope this blog will be a place where people come looking for ways that they too can make a difference, fight injustice and change some habits for the good of our global and interconnected society.
‘Change please, your change please…
