The Idealist.org Handbook to Building a Better World

If you want to change the world but have been wondering how to begin, or you’ve felt overwhelmed by all the possibilities, we have a book for you. Fresh off the presses, The Idealist.org Handbook to Building a Better World is designed to help you move from thinking about making a difference to actually doing it.

Visit this page on Idealist to learn more about the handbook and, after you’ve read it, share your own stories by writing to Idealists in Action blog editor April Greene at april [at] idealist.org.

We hope you enjoy the new book and look forward to hearing from you!

    Hi there – I really like your organization and what it is doing. We used your site for a job posting last year and got some nice responses as a result.

    I’m writing to tell you your link for the handbook is not loading. That link is at: http://www.idealist.org/en/handbook/

    If you can have your website folks look into it, I would be very interested in reading it. Best wishes and keep up the good work,
