Format: Paperback
500 Ways To Change The World is a compendium of ideas that have been submitted to the online Global Ideas Bank. Ideas range from how to turn a tower block into a 'flower block' to developing an index on each country's contributions to war and peace. Some ideas are purely fun (have a hibernation day for national regeneration!), some are very practical (finding out when buses are due by texting) and some seemingly impossible but absolutely worth putting forward (having an international sign language that is taught in all schools). The 500 ideas are a mix of suggestions that are still be turned into a reality and schemes that are taking place around the world and that could be replicated elsewhere.
It has a nifty size and although it is 400 pages does not feel overwhelming. You can dip into it at any page and read an idea. Individually they are interesting and amusing but together they represent a groundswell of change that can turn the tide on the poverty, environmental devestation and conflict in the world.
Written with an informal, engaging tone that inspires without (thankfully!) being too earnest, it is a practical and highly enjoyable read.
