A crash course in changing the world.
My favorite tip was:
Understand by observing the environment, infrastructure, culture and lives of people by being there.
I think this concept can not be underestimated when it comes to creating real and lasting change. When trying to brainstorm ideas for constructing solutions, you must be culturally aware and culturally SENSITIVE. Who the ideas come from and how they are phrased can make the difference in their effectiveness. Sometimes a solution that will work in America for example would be irrelevant in Africa.
