Think the world could use some changing? So do I. And so does the crew at WorldChanging.

WorldChanging is an ideas clearinghouse, basically. WorldChangers from all over – including a core group right here in Seattle – bring together “the tools, models and ideas for building a better future.”

There are two things in particular that I love about WorldChanging. The first is the grand scale of their vision: they blithely ignore the convention of dividing knowledge into discrete little boxes, and cover it all: environment, culture, technology, economy, politics. The second is the perfect balance they strike between realism (the world needs changing) and optimism (the world can be changed, and we can do it now) – for example, see this piece to commemorate Earth Day.

Their gorgeous book, Worldchanging: A User’s Guide for the 21st Century, comes out on January 1st, 2007. In the meantime, I’ll have to satisfy myself with their blog.
