Change the World for a Fiver is a delightfully practical book which suggests 50 slight changes we could make to our daily lives in order to ensure the future well-being of our communities and planet. Small changes that can have a significant impact. We Are What We Do, a Community Links project working in East London, propose actions from something as simple as not overfilling your kettle to broader calls for carpe diem and a change in attitude. Everyone is implicated in this charming and well presented handbook to leading an active, modern life.

It was Mahatma Gandhi who said: ‘We must be the change we want to see in the world’. In other words, we are what we do. Change the World for a Fiver embraces this approach and encourages small changes, which eventually will make a difference to the bigger picture.

It’s all based on a simple formula: small changes x lots of people = BIG change.

Change the World for a Fiver‘s forms a crucial part of the worldwide movement to become more conscientious citizens and has inspired a second book of 50 ideas of what you can do to improve your work place; Change the World 9 to 5.
