Idea of the Month: A small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world

| Greg Watson

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

This great quote from the American author Margaret Mead fills us with hope and inspiration as we head into 2017.

We were lucky enough to meet and talk to lots of thoughtful, committed citizens changing the world around them last year through our work with the Ideas Hub, and we’re looking forward to meeting many more this year too.
