'You must be the change you wish to see in the world.' So Gandhi advised. Today, there's a growing movement of people who are standing up and taking action to create positive change. Be uplifted by the stories of 28 pioneers, social entrepreneurs, activists and campaigners working in many fields – including the media, education, health, peace, finance, business and the environment. In exclusive interviews, individuals working on all scales – from global and national to local and grassroots levels – tell us how and why they are bringing positive change. They share the challenges and the joys, and show that a brighter future is not only possible, it's already emerging. Read these accounts of dedication, innovation, determination and courage, and be inspired to know what anyone can achieve when they decide to be the change.

Including: social justice and water rights advocate Maude Barlow; social entrepreneur Taddy Blecher; peace campaigners Scilla Elworthy and Gill Hicks; youth activist Craig Kielburger; holistic education pioneer Satish Kumar; Nobel Peace laureate Wangari Maathai; Fair Trade trailblazer Safia Minney; sustainable development leader Jonathon Porritt; radical environmentalist Vandana Shiva; civil rights lawyer Cliver Stafford Smith; global fundraiser and visionary Lynne Twist; and barrister/clown activist Jo Wilding.
