“Nowadays society doesn’t wait for the political people to act in their interest. Through Idealist, I see people confirming this phenomenon of ‘taking my life in my hands, because I can,’ ” says Diana in Bucharest, Romania.
“There are so many young people and so much energy as the city is growing and rejuvenating. It’s a good time to give people the tools to ensure it grows in a direction they envision,” says Karim in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
“You have to be able to address the issues within your society with your own work plan and your own means, little by little impacting society. I think that’s what’s great about the Idealist Network. It enables you to do this,” says Ibrahim inKampala, Uganda.
Enjoy being there for others:
“I’m easy to talk to. I don’t get overly worked up over things. I’m a good co-conspirator. And I’m good at getting things moving, but I don’t like to steal people’s thunder,” says Adam in Bozeman, Montana.
“I don’t feel a need to lead on other people’s ideas/projects but I like assisting with implementation,” says Leonie in Brisbane, Australia.
“Connecting people is what I do and have done my entire life. I see the inherent value of connecting people and ideas,” says Ellee in San Francisco, California.
