To solve the crises we face - especially the pressing issues of climate change, poverty and human trafficking - radical collaboration is essential. This means collaboration between organizations, between individuals, across political lines and between for-profit and non-profit organizations. It means putting aside our self-interests when they stand in the way of a greater good.

How far should we go?[edit | edit source]

Collaboration is a complex matter, and should not be sought just for its own sake. Maintain a focus on the mission, and note Himmelman's stages of working together - move in gradual steps in deepening relationships, look for practical, achievable actions, and find the level appropriate to the relationship and the mission.

See Collaboration #How far should we go? for further examination of this issue.
