Changemakers around the globe are having huge impacts on society every day, working in the social sector to exact brilliant solutions upon otherwise hopeless societal ills and virtually nobody knows about them.
Actuality Media is a for impact documentary production organization that works to recount the stories of heroes doing good. We take crews around the world to produce short documentaries about changemakers; we render our support to filmmakers who want to create social purpose media.
Change begins with one idea – a certain something could make this better. A changemaker takes this idea and runs with it, heeding their inner passion and channeling it into awe-inspiring determination. For changemakers, failure is just a necessary part of experimentation, as is getting feedback, measuring their results, and adapting to perform better. Changemakers create a lasting and sustainable solution to problems – not just by treating symptoms, but by pulling them out by the roots.
Thus is social innovation achieved.
Examples of these changemakers abound: in the 1970′s the Grameen Bank broke poverty cycles that had lasted in families for generations, and they did it by introducing micro-lending, starting with the poorest communities in the world. Revolution Foods is making a direct attack on childhood obesity by working with school cafeterias to provide healthy meals and nutritional information to American students. Riders For Health deals in providing reliable transportation for health workers in Africa, spreading treatment for easily preventable diseases across the continent.
These are stories that matter.
The toughest problems on the planet can be solved if only the people of the world would take action. Everything would change.– Heroic changemakers would be recognized and rewarded – Their good ideas would spread across the globe. – Social Entrepreneurship would become a more legitimate field for research and development – The best and brightest minds of today would devote their talent to social entrepreneurship – Peoples’ perspectives of other cultures would change for the better.
