ALBERTO ALEMANNO    Book Number: 83741    Product format: Paperback

Sub-titled 'Find Your Voice to Create a Better Society', this is a book encouraging effective citizen lobbyists. Many democratic societies are experiencing a crisis of faith. Citizens are making clear their frustration with their supposedly representative governments, which instead seem driven by the interests of big business, powerful individuals, property developers and wealthy lobby groups. What can we do about it? How can we fix democracy and get our voices heard? The author argues that the answer is to become change-makers, citizen lobbyists. By using our skills and talents and mobilising others, we can bring about social and political change; whoever you are, unleash the power within. From successfully challenging Facebook's use of private data, to abolishing EU mobile phone roaming charges, Alberto highlights the stories of those who have lobbied for change and shows how you can follow in their footsteps, protecting your local community from big business. With tons of tips on a do-it-yourself digital campaign, storytelling, picking your allies, FOIA requests, strategic choices of public (inside lobbying) or going public (outside lobbying) and the lowdown on data protection, drones, drug monopolies and big Pharma and more. A really positive book. 322pp in paperback.
