It shows how social activists ask better questions, take baby steps to move to the next level. From green campaigns to building profitable, trusted teams, to Government policy, Carmel offers practical tools and strategies in your personal and professional life.

Change activists ask better questions - what am I passionate about, what change do I want to see in the world, how can I make big things happen fast in my life? If you are interested in values led change for yourself, and across any kind of organization this will help; there is power in being true to yourself, in doing the right thing. And it is your life, so don't be plastic about it.
The book describes how to navigate the ups and downs of making change happen; from start up to scale up, to winning backers and allies. Through interviews with global change leaders including Big Issue co Founder Lord John Bird, Kenyan education leader Qabale Duba and Indian vaccination activist Varsha Vanugobal, Carmel unpacks the elements of successful change activists, suggests we are all capable of more, if we take action. This is a practical guide - Carmel wants everyone to find and play their part in a better future.
