Robertson Work Interview – Podcast April 2, 2018

Turning Our Vision For A More Compassionate World Into Action. Co-hosts Mike Cosentino and Steve Williamson welcome back professor, UN consultant, and community organizer Robertson Work to discuss his book A Compassionate Civilization: The Urgency of Sustainable Development and Mindful Activism. Faced with government officials and supporters who only want to think of themselves, he advises that we not spend our time trying to change them. “That’s not most of us,” he says. “The rest of us have to stand up and be heard. We have to take care of each other to keep going. Happiness is not a goal. It’s a way of living. It takes courage to keep going.”
