The “Taking Action” series develops the theme of the movie Tomorrow to bring scope for action to anyone who has a desire for action and change.

It provides an indispensable resource for initiating projects. Each work tackles the same issues – “Why?”, “Finding support”, “Building the right team”, “Starting out”, “Keeping going” and “What next?”
