The world seems to be going to hell in a handbasket. And we all know that the human experience can be quite challenging at times. So I love to find projects, initiatives, people, that make the world a better place. These projects and people give me hope and bring a smile to my face. And I hope they do the same for you. You’ll hear stories about people from all over the world, changing their societies. Every now and then I’ll have a chat with one of these initiatives and find out what drives them, what keeps them going even when things get a little tough. In addition, I'll throw in all I know about change - from your personal life to society. And maybe, one of the stories you’ll hear will motivate you to get active yourself. For we all can be changemakers. It starts in our own daily lives and then has ripple effect, spreading to our neighborhoods, cities, countries and the world as a whole. That’s what I believe, after all, I’m a voluntary optimist.
