Some photographs, and a book about changing the world

Posted in event summaries, other groups and events, people and interviews at 5:41 pm by Aditi Sriram

So I attended part of the “CUPID Presents: Urbanization in the Developing World — Perspectives on the Individual” conference on Friday 4/7 and encountered some very interesting social workers, lawyers and students who have been and are still involved in social justice, human rights and urbanization issues all over the world. Although I didn’t get to hear him speak, keynote speaker Robert Neuwirth sounds like a fascinating man. His book, Shadow Cities covers his journeys in 4 cities across the world, and the realizations he accumulates through his travels.

While I was researching Neuwirth and his book, I came across another interesting website about a campaign to change the world, Worldchanging, inspired by a photography contest won by Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky. It asks for donations, to ensure the sustainable development of this planet, but goes deeper than that. Worldchanging writes:

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, this is a conversation, not a sermon. We encourage not just feedback, but active participation, and, yes, challenge. Got a great idea for a resource we’ve missed? Let us know – better yet, write your own recommendation and send it to us. Think we’re off-base with a recommendation we’ve made? Let us know that, too, and what resource you think we should have covered instead. Changing the world is a team sport.

How can you play?

You can let us know what you think by commenting on specific recommendations. Every one of our recommendations includes a comment field at the bottom. We read ’em. So do others. Speak out and share what you know.

You can respond to individual authors by emailing us at the addresses found in our bios.

You can suggest a resource for us to cover by mailing us.

You can write a recommendation yourself. If it works for us, we’ll run it, with your byline. We don’t pay (we don’t even pay ourselves), but the karmic rewards are huge. (If you decide you want to write something for us, you might want to read through our contributors’ guidelines.)

You can let others know about worldchanging. Got a blog? We’d love a link. Have friends who might find reading us worthwhile? Email ’em and let ’em know. Spreading the word is part of the work.

Thanks, y’all!

So explore the website! Enjoy!
