Les Brown in his book, Plan B, observed that for every problem facing humanity, there’s a working solution somewhere in the world. BUT, the blockages to their implementation are staggering. There is a lack of getting the word out. Special interest groups have a heavy influence on public policy. And at the top of the list is ourselves; the human tendency to resist change.

What if we were able to break those barriers? How might it happen? Who is stepping up to break these barriers? What can WE do about them?
