B. SAGE Country Coordinators
SAGE Country Coordinators are champions for the SAGE cause. As David Bornstein says in his book, How to Change the World, if ideas are to take root and spread, they need champions. These champions are “obsessive people who have the skill, motivation, energy, and bullheadedness to whatever is necessary to move them forward: to persuade, inspire, seduce, cajole, enlighten, touch hearts, alleviate fears, shift perceptions, articulate meanings, and artfully maneuver them through systems” (p. 92).

These advisors provide time, energy and, in many cases, financial resources to further the SAGE vision and mission.
