Welcome! You have come to the website of “Changing Course for Life – Local
Solutions to Global Problems”.
We have to ‘change course’ for the sake of our own lives and the ‘greater life’ which is our environment, our planet and our humanity. Changing Course is the single most crucial issue of our time, beacause our lives – and the life of our planet – are increasingly coming under the control of a regulatory system that is squeezing the life blood out of our joy of living, and is pushing us towards the cliffs of despair rather than the green pastures of our deeper aspirations.
The system of governance which we are accustomed to has outlived its usefulness and is no longer able to meet the needs of our time. It is simply too inflexible and to dominated by a corporate global agenda whose sole aim is profit. Rather than suffocate under the dead weight of its inertia, we have a great opportunity to rebuild a new society on the fresh ground of ‘decentralised’, local initiatives that spark a new people led, ‘bottom up’ renaissance of hope and fulfillment. “Changing Course for Life” was written to guide and provoke meaningful actions that help inspire us to ‘take control of our lives’ and become willing catalysts of community renewal, local empowerment and creative governance.
Our society is bankrupt: Physically, emotionally and spiritually. But we, as individuals, are still blessed with the spark of life and hope. So we must invest this ‘spark energy’ into something that will outlast the crumbling status quo. Its like deciding to take your money out of the big, brash, impersonal corporate bank and putting it into a socially and ecologically benign neighbourhood co-operative – then getting involved yourself in helping the co-operative to succeed!
This site is established to act as a tool to draw together those who wish to make a genuine commitment to the process of positive change (right across the spectrum of human concerns) and who wish to pool their talents and energies into bringing about the complete transformation of our worn out and largely dysfunctional way of life.

We have no alternative but to start (or continue) to build a new society, founded on genuine humanitarian values and an enduring vision of hope, creativity and fulfilment.
“Changing Course for Life – Local Solutions to Global Problems” is a manual for change, a wake up call for us to take back control of our lives before they become irreversibly controlled. The book examines where we lost our way: historically, socially, environmentally, agriculturally, economically, technologically, and in law, education and spirit. It demonstrates how to now resolve the key dilemmas brought about via ‘wrong doing’ in each of these spheres – and beyond.
Changing Course for Life focuses on pragmatic human scale resolutions to conflicting socio-economic problems, proposing realiseable ‘local’ solutions as an antidote to rapidly developing global crises.
Through the channeling of reawakened human energies into a process of root and branch societal reform, the author forsees a ‘new renaissance’ of hope, creative endeavour that can reshape our perilous planetary existence and lead to a deeper and more subtle relationship between man and nature as well as between fellow human beings.
“Julian Rose draws together all the strands of his highly diverse life experiences and, in a multidimensional vision of the future, calls for an uncompromising commitment to dynamic, decentralised community leadership as the chief vehicle for overcoming the dominant and life threatening Orwellian collusion between corporate greed and political ineptitude. He forsees this new beginning blossoming into a life-affirming process of humanistic and spiritual self realisation.”
