Lobbying for Change
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 and wealthy lobby groups. The answer, argues Alberto Alemanno, is to become change-makers citizen lobbyists. By using our skills and talents and mobilizing others, we can bring about social and political change. Whoever you are, youve got power, and this book will show you how to unleash it. From successfully challenging Facebooks 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, whether you want to influence immigration policy, put pressure on big business or protect your local community.
