Wai H. Tsang has been described by Dr Gail Bradbrook, the Founder of Extinction Rebellion, as ‘an amazing thinker, speaker and writer’ and is supportive of his ideas relating to revolution and paradigm shift. He is currently collaborating on a new book with best selling US author Daniel Pinchbeck on how to instigate a global system change.
