No One Is Coming to Help. Now What? In this era of increasingly complex problems and shrinking resources, can we find meaningful and enduring solutions to the challenges we face today as individuals, communities, and nations? In Walk Out Walk On , we invite you on a learning journey to seven communities around the world to meet people who have walked out of limiting beliefs and assumptions and walked on to create healthy and resilient communities. These Walk Outs who Walk On use their ingenuity and caring to figure out how to work with what they have to create what they need. From Mexico to India, from Columbus, Ohio to Johannesburg, South Africa, we discover that all communities have the intelligence and inventiveness to solve their seemingly insolvable problems.We discovered a gift inside ourselves, one Brazilian said, something that was already there. Walk Out Walk On is the winner of a silver medal in the social change category of the 2012 Nautilus Book Awards.
