Change.org's Predictions for the New Decade
It's a new year and a new decade, and there's no better time to take a look toward the future of social change. What will be the defining moments of 2010, and what victories might we be celebrating come 2020?
Will this be the decade that the world finally sees a vaccine for HIV or a cure for Alzheimer's Disease?
Might this be the decade where foreign policy analysts start to draw the connections between terrorism and human trafficking?
Or maybe the 2010s will be the decade that fully embraces civil rights for LGBT people, from marriage to anti-discrimination laws?
Above all, one thing seems for certain: the 2010s will be the decade where social action not only changes the status quo, but creates a renewed sense of optimism that communities of concerned people can indeed make history.
As we start this decade, people have never had so much power to shape conversations and take action on the issues they are most passionate about. That's why we at Change.org think that in the next 10 years we have the collective potential not only to meet the many challenges we face, but to make an impact that will last for generations to come.
