Can grassroots make a difference?

People used to institutional powers are easily skeptical about the ability of grassroots groups to make inroads into change, much less transformation of societies, economies and cultures.

Celebrated anthropologist Margaret Mead famously suggested that small groups are not only the ones who make significant change, they in fact have been the ones who always have.

Supporting grass roots efforts requires us to rethink their models of innovation, socialization and spread.
