Everybody Wants to Rule the World

If I ran the world, I would …

Make a video of the best teachers teaching…  Make everyone pick up garbage…  Disallow any chemicals to be used for farming…  Make sure every child has a book to read…

The single biggest pool of untapped natural resource in the world is human good intentions that never translate into actions. If We Ran the World (http://www.ifwerantheworld.com), a new site, has set out to change that. They have created a platform that takes good intentions and makes it easy to turn them into actions.

First things first. When you open the site you answer the question that you probably haven’t been asked since you were in Kindergarten: If You Ran the World What Would You Do? Your answer becomes a micro-action that other people on the site can connect to, forming a group.  A group who cares about the same things you do. Together you can actually take those good intentions and turn them into real live actions. It can be anything, really. Something small (like create promotional materials) or something not-so-small (like make my house sustainable). Just type it in. Then start with picking up a microaction, and join forces on actionplatforms with people already working to make it happen. Or start an actionplatform of your own.
