10 Ways to Change the World
By changing our consciousness and re-connecting with our inner spirit, we will naturally want to make the world a cleaner, healthier, safer and more beautiful place in which human beings and other creatures, can live together in peace and harmony.

Workshops for the environment
Environment, Lifestyle and Consciousness - As a part of our Environment Initiative, the Brahma Kumaris are exploring the connection between the consciousness of the individual and the collective effect on the state of the planet. Our consciousness determines the values by which we live. Our values form the basis of our actions which in turn determine whether or not they contribute to the protection and sustainability of the environment.
NEW - ChangeMaker Hub - As someone who loves great ideas and wants to make our world a better place you may face unique challenges – your optimism may be worn down by opposition, your creativity may stop working and your trust in other people's good intentions may become jaded. The Changemaker has been developed to support the creativity, optimism and pure motivation of people of ideas from all walks of life, so that we can enjoy being at our best and keep giving our best.
