"We had the great privilege to work with Scilla to turn the Elders into a reality in partnership with Richard Branson, Peter Gabriel and a host of other wonderful partners. We all found Scilla to be an incredibly insightful leader. Her ability to see the big picture, yet bring this back to practical action for individuals is a wonderful gift."

"PEACE BEGINS WITH ME
We as humans have a great challenge right now: we can go on as we are - and if we do, it’s clear that life as we know it will soon be untenable. Alternatively, we can change. Change begins at home, with us. Actually, with me.
So if I want peace in the world,
I need to start at home.
Perhaps that’s what I really long to do -
To find my true purpose in life.
To know what I’m here for.
To become who I really am."

This book is the first to address these anxieties head on. It does this by envisaging a future that could work for all, demonstrating with live examples how that future is already emerging, and profiling the people – well known and unknown - who are already living it.
