  • Ten Ways to Change the World in Your Twenties

Travels from: Seattle, WA

Libuse Binder is the author of Ten Ways to Change the World in Your Twenties (www.tenways.org). In her book, Binder provides a timely roadmap for individuals looking to make a difference — from eating locally and reducing waste, to starting a nonprofit organization or finding a career dedicated to helping others. Binder provides up-to-date resources and ideas for the casually concerned and deeply passionate alike. By combining easy-to-follow suggestions with the stories of myriad Millennials already making a difference, she inspires people to find and follow their passions, and to believe in their ability to do good in the world today.

Activist Laurie David says, "What I love about Ten Ways is that it picks up where so many books leave off and answers the question, 'what exactly is to be done by individuals who want to help?' Environmentalist Bill McKibben says, ''Everywhere I go around the planet, I find young people, fresh from college, leading the new green movement. With savvy and heart, they're making a real difference — and as this book shows, you can too!"

After moving into film production immediately after college, Libuse Binder left an ambitious career in Hollywood to make a difference in the lives of the next generation. Through her experiences as a writer, teacher, and environmental activist, as well as her research into how technology has energized grassroots movements everywhere, she has grown to believe in the powerful potential of this next generation to change the world in revolutionary ways. Her work has also appeared in Weekly Way, Earth911, Worldchanging, and Fit Yoga.
