“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.” ― Albert Einstein
Ever had someone try to tell you to change? Doesn’t work too well, does it? Unless you decide that you need to change yourself.
Trying to bring about change in the world is similar to changing yourself. The only way change will be lasting is if individuals or communities identify the change as a necessity within themselves. This concept is what we refer to as community driven or a bottom-up approach.
