'We need effective citizen-lobbyists - not just likers, followers or even marchers - more than ever. I have no hesitation in lobbying you to read this book.'
Bill Emmott, former editor in chief, the Economist

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.

What can we do about it? How do we fix democracy and get our voices heard?

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, you've got power, and this book will show you how to unleash it.

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, whether you want to influence immigration policy, put pressure on big business or protect your local community.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`Lobbying for Change unveils an inconvenient truth: it is not the interests of the few that are overrepresented but those of the many that are underrepresented in the policy process. This book provides a guide for citizens to act as an equalising force in today's polarised society. An inspiring, timely and positive narrative of today's state of democracy and an antidote to the trap of populism.' -- Pascal Lamy * former Director of the World Trade Organisation and EU Commissioner for Trade *

`Lobbying for Change inspires us to take back control of our own lives by challenging received notions of policy-making. In a graceful and easy-to-read style full of practical detail, Alemanno has presented the case to engage and shown all of us just how easy it is.'

-- Ed Rekosh
