This weeks Changemaker inspiration is a bit of a hero of mine. Jose Mujica started out life as a farmer, became a guerrilla fighter, was imprisoned for 13 years and then…became the president of Uruguay from 2010-2015.

As you can imagine he is a bit different to the likes of Donald Trump, David Cameron and Barack Obama.

He is said to have given away 90% of his Presidential salary each year to charity and shunned private jets, and armoured vehicles instead opting to drive himself around in a 1987 VW Beetle.

Here he discusses many of the issues we face in todays society and also offers some practical solutions.
