Please join me in welcoming Fay Weller & Mary Wilson, authors of Changemakers: Embracing Hope, Taking Action, and Transforming the World



Read the book summary here!

Fay & Mary will be hanging out in the forums until Friday, July 27th answering questions and sharing their experiences with you all.

At the end of the week, we'll make a draw for 4 lucky winners to win a copy of their book! From now until Friday, all new posts in the Decision Making forum are eligible to win.

To win, you must use a name that follows our naming policy and you must have your email set up to receive the Daily-ish email.

The winners will be notified by Personal Moosage and must respond within 24 hours. Only the winners who respond within that timeframe will receive their book. Watch for a PM, and a notice in this thread announcing the winners!


Please remember that we favour perennial discussion.  The threads you start will last beyond the event.  You don't need to use Fay or Marys' names get their attention. We like these threads to be accessible to everyone, and some people may not post their experiences if the thread is directed to the author alone.


Posts in this thread won't count as an entry to win the book, but please say "Hi!" to Fay & Mary and make them feel welcome!

Hi Michelle,
Three keys for me - making change happen in my local community, making change with others based on our values, and connecting with other communities wanting to make similar change happen. There are numerous stories in the book describing a range of people carrying out change in their communities. Many of those changes have then spread further through networks of enthusiasm and inspiration.  My favourite personal change story is the Gertie community bus story, an idea currently spreading to other communities.

I only say 'Hi' to Mary and Fay here.
I won't do anything to make me win the book, because this Friday I plan to leave for a bicycle-camping-trip of a few weeks. I probably won't be online often. I had some chances before to win books, but never was able to respond within 24 hours

Thanks!
I am really enjoying a chance to poke around through the various forums. This is the first time I have joined a forum and I'm blown away by the discussions and ideas on this site - diving into one on how to up-cycle glass to another on mulching and/or irrigation. Thanks so much for inviting us and welcoming us!

Congratulations to the four winners! I really appreciated all of the thought provoking posts. And thanks again for inviting us to participate on the forum as authors. I really enjoyed learning about the Permie world and look forward to engaging in further conversations.
