Why are we doing this?

A dream you dream alone is just a dream.
A dream you dream together is reality.

– John Lennon

Today’s world is more connected and technologically advanced than ever before in human history.

But at the same time we are under dire threats– from those of pandemic; climate crisis; disparity and extreme polarization; civil wars and nuclear threat; enmity and discrimination towards different races, religions, genders, and generations; and many other social problems that imperil the lives of people and the earth.

But there is hope. Because there is a myriad of people out there and among us who are ceaselessly working to find creative solutions to these challenges and are taking real action to make real changes.

We call them social innovators, changemakers, peacemakers, greater-good practitioners, global shapers, cultural innovators or culture designers, everyday heroes, and by many other names. Anyone who is harnessing their own talent to make our world safer, healthier, happier, and sustainable counts. 

We believe that if we get to connect, meet and engage with each other so that we can learn from each other’s experiences and wisdom, bring our creative minds together, we can create a bigger impact and the collective and compound effect.

Greater-good is our goal.
Sustainability is our way.
And, Together is our spirit.

This map is to visualize together the moments our dreams become reality.

We believe a better world is possible and worth creating together.
Welcome to the #WeAreBetterTogether global community!
