I love this short animation, in which Jody Williams, Nobel Peace Prize winner (for her work related to banning and clearing of anti-personnel mines) describes her firm belief that each and every one of us can and should contribute to creating a better world.
It's well worth spending two minutes of your time watching the clip - to enjoy the wonderful animation, and to feel inspired.
Jody's messages strongly resonate with me personally, and with the ethos of The School for Change Agents. The online course is free to join and to participate in. It will equip you with the knowledge and skills to become an agent of change, how your actions can best influence change, and connect you with a global community of like-minded people.

Anyone can be an agent of change. All it really takes it finding what you feel the most passionate about...if it's an issue that stirs your passion and by working on it you can contribute to the greater good, including those whom you do not necessarily like politically or ideologically... Every action really does contribute to change, and the power that each and every one of us has to decide whether we want to be participants in creating the world we live in, or we choose to do nothing.
