Is it okay if most of us have jobs, a roof over our heads and enough food to eat if some of us remain hungry with nowhere to sleep? Or is it possible to have a world that works for all of us? Sharif Abdullah says it is--people are inherently good and want to do what's right. It's our systems that need an overhaul. "We have the tools and technology to eliminate hunger, as well as the ecological damage we've done to the Earth." Abdullah provides the no-nonsense advice that can turn ideas into actions, visions into workable solutions, and dreams into realities. Discover how to help change the world with this leading proponent for inclusive social, cultural, and spiritual transformation. (hosted by Michael Toms)
