Happy birthday to you!

Last week was the fifth anniversary of the Lasting Difference launch. 7000+ organisations, 5 continents, 100s of workshops and events. It's popular because people see themselves in it. That's only because we keep learning alongside all of you. Thank you for being part of the story.
