More than 150 Echoing Green Fellows gathered in Joburg for the 2015 All Fellows Conference to refine and re-energize their leadership. Here's what we learned.
A New GOOD
Last week, our friends at GOOD launched a new website that aims to be a collaborative space to learn and take action to drive social change around the world.
Here's how they describe it:
“When GOOD started six years ago, we were trying to give voice to a spirit we saw emerging around the world. We wanted to create a place for people who give a damn— a place where individual and collective interests meet. We called this GOOD, and set out to help this sensibility grow and flourish. And it has, faster than we could have imagined.
Now, we want to invite you to the next chapter of GOOD: When you go to good.is you will find a new, more open and collaborative space—a place to learn, but also to do, a place to share ideas and spark action, a place to connect with people you respect around issues that matter to you. Join us, and plug into a growing community of people who give a damn.”
Echoing Green has created a profile, and we encourage you to do the same. We're looking forward to sharing ideas and actions with you.
Here are a few of the many posts we find interesting:

Echoing Green focuses on finding stellar individuals who can carry their ideas and explain why they have what it takes to succeed.
Bringing about dramatic and lasting social change requires lifelong leadership and learning lessons along the way.
