YP Innovation in India

Politics aside, there are large, complex issues facing our community on a local, national, and international stage.  So, how do you play a part in proposing and implementing a solution?

Young professionals in India decided to assume responsibility for community change by creating an awareness tour around their issue of choice, climate change.  What started as a small effort soon grew in participants and activities to include dancers. engineers, activists, musicians and so on.  Their motivation for this effort:

We wanted to find a way to bring people together around existing solutions to inspire more action and more innovation. There’s no time left to just talk about the problem…the world needs crazy ideas to change things, because the conventional way of thinking is not working anymore.

Obviously, these young professionals are taking their countryman Gandhi’s charge to heart. 

Take a moment to think about your own responsibility in creating change around the issues in our community.  Tell us your “unconventional” solutions and let’s see if we cannot start a caravan-for-a-cause (name  your issue) of our own here in Alabama.
