In We Do Things Differently, Mark Stevenson seeks out the innovators who are challenging the status quo and pioneering new ways to make our world more sustainable and equitable. From off-grid African villages 'technology leapfrogging' the West, to the boardrooms of (unsung) corporations that are taking the environment seriously, via patient-led groups transforming healthcare and new systems of citizen government that are helping Brazilian Favelas find a new future, We Do Things Differently travels the world to find the advance guard re-imagining our future.
Populated by extraordinary (and often hilarious) characters, We Do Things Differently paints an enthralling picture, offering a window on, and a road map to a different future. For the powers-that-be it might make uncomfortable reading.
