Overview


Tactics of Hope is Welch’s call to action, driven in part by the frustration with the priorities and pace at which the current players on the world scene are addressing issues, such as extreme poverty, human rights and the environment. Out of this frustration, however, came a major gift—the gift of hope and possibility. Worldwide participants, chronicled in this book ,are inspired and inspiring, and the organizations and individuals involved are doing impressive and effective work. One business leader contributed desperately needed computers to schools in Cambodia; two individuals teamed up to teach conflict resolution in South Africa; another volunteered to fund ongoing dialogues between the Palestinians and Israelis. Presented in each chapter are new visions of what is possible and realized that global public opinion and individual initiative might indeed become the world’s second super-power and help bring about change in global priorities.
