I have never been more motivated to learn and be active in my own culture. I feel like I have not only neglected, but forgotten my culture, my people, and my history. I have always been prud of who I am, but after seeing how hard those five families work for so little, I’m second guessing who I want to be.

The most important contribution any of us can make now is not to solve any particular problem, no matter how urgent energy or environment or financial regulation is. What we must do now is increase the proportion of humans who know that they can cause change.

Welcome to the Official Blog of Global Visionaries!

Dear GV Community,

Welcome to the official blog of Global Visionaries! We have switched from Tumblr to WordPress in our quest to expand GV’s online presence. We hope this may become a platform for discussion, edification, enlightenment, and change.

On behalf of the Global Visionaries communications team, we hope you check in with us on a regular basis to get all the updates about what is happening with GV; both here in the United States and down in Guatemala. We are proud that our community spreads through different continents, time zones, nations, languages, and cultures. The diversity of GV’s family is a testiment to our mission to become brothers and sisters with everyone around the world.

If you are reading this and would like to contribute to our blog, do not hesitate to e-mail us at newsletter@global-visionaries.org. If there is anything you would like to share, please let us know right away. Thank you very much and happy reading.
