“Changing people’s minds does help with changing behavior, but it’s not the only way to change behavior, and it might not even be the best way.” ~ Jason Radford
James Baldwin wrote, “The world changes according to the way people see it, and if you can alter, even by a millimeter the way people look at reality, then you can change the world.”
Changing the world is exactly what sociologist Jason Radford is trying to do. Through his leadership at Volunteer Science and Northeastern University’s Social Design Lab, he is seeking to involve more people in scientific research and turning that research into technologies, programs, and companies that solve social problems. Curiosity enterprises if ever there were some!
