In Worldchanging 101: Challenging the Myth of Powerlessness, David LaMotte challenges some deeply held, though seldom examined, ideas we have about how large societal changes happen and what our own roles in those changes can and should be. Drawing on stories from his own work and interviews with others in Guatemala, India, South Africa, Australia, Palestine, the United States, and Bosnia, LaMotte methodically challenges internalized narratives that keep us immobile in the face of problems that confront us as communities, nations, and a world.
The book is at once challenging, encouraging and inspiring. In an accessible, story-based style, LaMotte looks at questions of daily vocation, helping us to discern both our potential to have an impact and how we go about getting started. Anyone who wants to live a life that matters will find something of value here.
…will help [readers] ignite their passion, harness their unique skills, and find ways to impact their family, community, and the world.”
