The Power of One

Jody Williams, the leader of the International Campaign to ban Landmines, outlines the steps for successfully making a change in the world, using her own movement for an international treaty banning landmines asan example. Williams gives a moving speech about the potential and the power that just one individual holds to change the world. She reminds the audience that peace is more than the absence of conflict: sustainable peace can only exist in conjunction with justice and equality, and in order to achieve this kind of peace, individuals, “can and must become agents of change.”
