I believe that in order to change the world we have to change ourselves, and there is much we can learn to make change happen. Here is a great free online Coursera course offered by Wesleyan University titled "How to Change the World". I am a huge Coursera fan and have already taken few of their free online classes and I highly recommend them.

The course description: "How can we use the things we share in common to address some of the most challenging problems facing the world? This course examines issues concerning poverty, the environment, technology, health care, gender, education and activism to helps us understand better how to initiate positive change."

Visit the course website and join me in this class: https://www.coursera.org/course/changetheworld

Here is the site if you want to browse other classes: https://www.coursera.org/

I will share and journal about what I am learning. So stay tuned!

Hi Alexanda,

I'm also taking that course, although I must admit that I'm finding it hard to make the time for it!

Also, I wanted to suggest that you post this in the Resource Exchange here: http://worldpulse.com/pulsewire/exchange It's a great place where everyone can post/find opportunities, funding, needs, etc. I think the the course would get more visibility if you could post it there!

Take care!

Alexandra, Affirmative, pour changer le monde nous devons d'abord commencer par vous mêmes en convertisant votre façon de vie,changement durable des mentalités, des idées fortes pour transmettre aux autres.C'est ça le véritable changement de monde parce qu'on donne ce qu'on a.


Dear Alexadra, It has been many months since we met you on World Pulse. I hope you are well and realizing your ambitions.

Continue being a blessing upon our shared earth. Yvette
