Green Mountain Global Forum (GMGF) is honored to present an evening with David Bornstein who will discuss his acclaimed and inspirational book, "How to Change the World: Social Entrepreneurs and the Power of New Ideas", at the Round Barn in Waitsfield at 7PM on March 9th.

"How to Change the World," translated into nine languages, has been described by The New York Times as "must reading" for "anyone who cares about building a more equitable and stable world." Nelson Mandela has called Bornstein's book "wonderfully hopeful and enlightening... The stories of these social entrepreneurs will inspire and encourage many people who seek to build a better world."

Bornstein's first book, "The Price of a Dream: The Story of the Grameen Bank" (Simon & Schuster, 1996), traces the history of the Grameen Bank and the global emergence of the anti-poverty strategy called "micro-credit." The Price of a Dream won numerous prizes, and was selected by the San Francisco Chronicle as one of the best business books of 1996.

Bornstein's articles and opinion pieces have appeared in The Atlantic Monthly, The New York Times, Newsday, and other publications. Bornstein grew up in Montreal, Canada and now lives in New York City with his wife, Abigail, and son, Elijah.

Bornstein's talk for GMGF will draw on many years of research around the world learning the extraordinary stories and strategies of ordinary people–social entrepreneurs–who are stepping in to solve profound social problems where governments and bureaucracies have failed — and how the hope and courage of one person truly can make a difference.

Sponsored by Green Mountain Global Forum, this event is free and all are invited. Join us on March 9th at the Round Barn in Waitsfield at 7PM, and learn more about this transformation in the means to lasting social change. Discussion will follow the presentation. Refreshments by Michael's Good to Go! will be served. The Round Barn is located on East Warren Road in Waitsfield. For more information, contact GMGF at 496-2111.
