LAST post- 60 second idea to change the world


There is a lot wrong with the world.  But there is nothing wrong with the world that cannot be fixed by what is right with the world (thanks Bill Clinton for the phrase).  I think the same mix is inside each of us.  Hopefully, your education and this class have given you the means and tools to find what is fixable and how to start fixing.

What To Do

In that spirit, your last post is to think of a “60 second idea to improve the world.”  This is shamelessly borrowed form a BBC podcast I heard. (You can riff on an idea there if you like).

Please read your post and time it to sixty seconds!  These should be short, powerful, and convincing.  60 seconds is about two paragraphs or 500 words.

You can go big (whole world) or small (fix one corner of the world).  The main idea is that it is an idea that we can envision.

Please post the title (and URL) to your finished idea in the COMMENTS ↓ of this post so we can easily find it.

Contest!

There will be a small prize for the winning idea as determined by the post’s rating with my opinion being the final tie-breaker.

Encourage others to see your idea!  Facebook!  Twitter!  Whatever it takes!

Ideas…

You may have an idea you have been carrying around in your head.  Maybe you heard something you want to promote here.  Total originality is hard. You can look here too for inspiration:
