Nominate the Worldchangers in Your Town

After a long stint in the virtual world, it's time we met you face to face. We will, of course, be forever on your computer screen, but we hope you'll join us for some real-time revelry when we come to your town. We want to celebrate the release of our new book with you, and also hear about the worldchanging things that are happening in your area.

Below, over the next day or so, you'll see a stack of individual posts dedicated to each of the 12 cities we'll be visiting between October 28 and December 14. Find your city, think of the local worldchangers we ought to connect with, shoot us an email. As has been said a time or two, local is the new organic...

Portland: Mark Lakeman, founder of City Repair. A true "world changer!"

So why are you sticking to the US? The world does not end at the 49th parallel (or the Rio Grande), you know!

C'mon up to the Peoples' Republic of Canukistan, where everyone has health care, "peace keeping" is the only valid foreign military use, and we're paying down the national debt!

I had the pleasure to meet this young man last month during a peaceful remembrance ceremony for 9/11. I was swept away by his positive nature, his determination, and his drive to be innovative. His desire to target an audience on the INTERNET with a positive slant on life and the news is a refreshing perspective in a world so jaded where we need positive role models. I think that his site is innovative, captivating, and, has the potential to be much more informative and will catch the audience that the networks are so poorly missing. I'd love to see his dreams become a reality. Please do take the time to view.
Thank you.
Sincerely,
T. Perlmutter

World Changer in Seattle:
Dan Freeman of Dr. Dan's Alternative Fuelwerks.
Dan introduced biodiesel to the Pacific Northwest and is rumored to be the largest and most successful retailer in the country. With the support of the Northwest Biodiesel Network, Dan created and nourished the biodiesel market in this area to the point where competition and infrastructure demands are growing at a healthy pace. Congratulations and thanks to Dan - thousands of green drivers in the Metro Seattle area count on him to help them make a difference.

There are four candidates that come to my mind instantly as World Changers ...
In Seattle...
*Tim Nuse-Co-founder of Partners for Sustainable Living
*KC Golden - Policy Director, Climate Solutions

In Portland...
*Jeanne and Dick Roy - Co-Founders of Northwest Earth Institute

Each of these four have had a profoundly positive impact on countless lives in the Pacific Northwest, mine included. Individually and collectively they have set a wave of positive change in motion.
Please respond if you would like more detailed info.
