FOR 11 MONTHS ONE WOMAN TRAVELLED THE WORLD DOCUMENTING THE STORIES OF THOSE WHO TRY TO CHANGE IT - THIS IS HER STORY. For 11 months Clare Mulvany travelled the globe meeting people who have stepped off the beaten path to make a greater difference. Her journey led her to meet a former rocket scientist turned inventor, an economist turned philanthropist and a myriad of inspirational people from all walks of life using their ideas and innovation to make the world a better place. Armed with a camera and laptop and an unrelenting desire to meet the change-makers of this world Clare Mulvany travelled through Ireland, Africa, Asia, India, the Pacific and the United States discovering the inspiring stories of social entrepreneurs using their business skills and humanitarian passion to bring hope to millions. From the slums of India to the remotest islands of Tonga, Clare experienced the hardships and joys on our planet and met those who face the most incredible obstacles and still push through to make a positive change. During her travels Clare met mothers, scientists, Nobel Prize winners, financiers, artists, educators, doctors, politicians, engineers, street children - all ordinary people making an extraordinary contribution to your world. This unique and lavishly produced book is a documentary of people who contribute social profit to the world they live in through their skills, talents and passion. It's a diary of one woman's passion for social entrepreneurship, a collection of images reflecting the goodness in the world and the ultimate inspiring resource tool for those who are ready to finally say yes to the voice in their heads telling them that they can have an impact on our world. One Wild Life is an invaluable tool for the growing numbers determined to challenge unacceptable conditions. When money seems to be the ultimate sign of prosperity, this book is a refreshing, inspiring and hopeful account of the people who silently work in our midst to enact long-lasting and life-enhancing social change. When financial profit can seem like the only currency, this is beautiful collection of words and pictures highlights the importance of social profit through the stories of those who contribute to a better world. Just some of the change-makers profiled in the book, many of whom are Ireland's greatest social entrepreneurs, include: Mary Davis, Special Olympics Ireland; Caroline Casey, Founder of Kanchi and the 02 Ability Awards; Colman O'Gorman, One in Four/Amnesty International; Ruairi McKiernan, Community Creations & SpunOut; Youk Chhang, Documentation Centre of Cambodia; and Ian Clarke, International Hospital Kampala.
