The economic, social and environmental issues of our time gradually transform our worldview. Soon, it will become essential to redefine the standards of our capitalist societies and to put capitalism to the test in the face of the new realities of man’s place in the world’s economy. Are the concepts of entrepreneurship and sustainable development compatible? It seems that some ARCHITECTS OF CHANGE are working hard to show that it is indeed possible to practice a form of responsible capitalism that is both financially and socially profitable for shareholders, corporate leaders and consumers alike. Featured ARCHITECTS OF CHANGE: 1. Mohamad Yunus (Founder of micro-credit banking and Nobel Peace Prize winner, Bangladesh) 2. Tristan Lecomte (Founder of Alter Eco, France) fair trade; 3. Bill Drayton (Founder of Ashoka, USA) social entrepreneur modelling changemaking.
