“Be THE CHANGE you want to see”
“Se el Cambio Que Quieres Ver ”
Sergio Jimenez Campos wanted to change the world. Quite an aspiring task and definitely something most of us dream of doing, yet a lot of work to take on for one man. From the beautiful country of Costa Rica, Sergio would search the internet, looking for peace projects that he could get involved in. After posting a few of his beliefs of peace on a blog, Gordon Millar from Scotland read and felt that Sergio would be a perfect co-founder and co-creator for The Global We. With a diverse set of individuals, Gordon and his team were convinced that people can join from all over the world to discuss ways and implement systems to make the world a better place. Along with Martin Aelred from Scotland, Kumud Singh from India and Cat Forsley from Canada, the Global We was born.
“Never doubt that a small group of people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead
The Global We was formed quickly in 2009 from a group of determined people from literally all points of the globe. With this diversity, they can touch many, but what projects did the Global We take on? To sum it up, all of them. Through YouTube and other forms of social media technology these individuals start creating videos to reach out to strangers across the globe, sharing in issues such as plastic production, wars and the importance of the reconnection of human kind. They started receiving emails internationally asking for help on emotional and personal issues. Members of the Global We would answer based on their personal experience. Sergio asserts that personal experience in life can “provide a lot of light in the fire” of others. With no money invested and a lot of love, the Global We quickly touched the hearts and minds from all corners of the earth.
“The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.” Albert Einstein
The Global We quickly became attached to issues in regards to mass pollution. Causes such as “We all share one planet” include the problems with plastic in our era. The Global We stresses that the world must learn how to use it wisely since its overuse can affect our eco system. Let us leave the planet to our children in better shape than we received it! Sergio believes that one should “be the change they want to see” instead of waiting for someone else to do it, use your own two hands to become that change.
How does the Global We work with each different culture, religion and creed around the world? The answer again is simple. Embrace the difference and find commonality between the barriers. Uniting for a cause to make the world a cleaner and overall better place to live is a universal language that stems across each country, through each person. To reach this international fan base, Sergio himself speaks English, Spanish and Portuguese. He has friends and family around the planet, and with his coworkers they are able to reach their fan base in India as effectively as in England. This effectively aids in improving their global communication and increases the creativity of new ideas and the support from each incredible person from around the planet. This helps the Global We handle their huge fan base around the world in many languages.
“Remember, intentions are the first part of an Action. Motivation is basic for our First Step :)” Sergio ´Checho – Che-bro´ Jiménez Campos
What does the future hold for the Global We? Sergio insists that the future is created by every step we take. He encourages individuals to grow their own personal gardens, keeping our neighbours healthy. Mother Nature can heal us, so we must be her caretakers to ensure her safety. Over time, the Global We has connected with Ipeace, Costa Rica, Edinburgh, India and California’s Global centers of Peace and Progress to share ideas and thoughts on the commitment to peace.
