How to Change the World: Social Entrepreneurs and the Power of New Ideas by David Bornstein

Excerpted from Chapter 1

Restless People
The Emergence of the Global Citizen Sector

Social entrepreneurs have existed throughout history. St. Francis of Assisi, the founder of the Franciscan Order, would qualify as a social entrepreneur — having built multiple organizations that advanced pattern changes in his “field.” Similarly, Florence Nightingale created the first professional school for nurses and established standards for hygiene and hospital care that have shaped norms worldwide.

What is different today is that social entrepreneurship is developing into a mainstream vocation, not only in the United States, Canada, and Europe, but increasingly in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. In fact, the rise of social entrepreneurship represents the leading edge of a remarkable development that has occurred across the world over the past three decades: the emergence of millions of new citizen organizations.

David Bornstein, author of How to Change the World, told Global X what happened when he was a young journalist and he first met Muhammad Yunus in Bangladesh.

He also talks about his aunt Suzan, who taught him to climb the fence when necessary: “The world is a playground, and one shouldn’t follow the rules at all times.”
