President Carter: Decent housing is a right




For 28 years, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn have faithfully volunteered with Habitat for Humanity. They have built homes in communities around the world and have seen the changes that are born when people from all faiths and backgrounds come together.

In the current issue of The Guardian online, President Carter shares his thoughts about decent housing and about how to create sweeping change. It’s about cooperation and sustainability, he says, first changing how we think to change how we act.
