Summary
With every news report, the world seems to be careening off the rails. It's all too easy to slip into despair waiting for co-opted, self-serving governments to act.

Hope and action is the antidote. We each hold the power to make personal changes that can drive local changes and cascade into large-scale social transformation. This is the guidebook for ordinary people who want to create a new society now.

The first section explores the idea of transformative change – what it is, what difference it makes, and how it is connected to learning.

From creating a citizen-powered community bus service, to winning the right to local food, to women hand-sculpting their own houses, the second section explores powerful stories of everyday people who have challenged traditional understandings and transformed their lives, their communities, and wider society.

In the final section, the authors provide a workbook to guide people, wherever they are, through the process of catalyzing change.

We all have the power to create a more just and ecological society. We all have the power to be changemakers.
