Advocating for the Environment

How to Gather Your Power and Take Action



A solutions-focused inspirational guide for addressing the earth's environmental crisis and enacting meaningful change.

As we find ourselves living in an age of unprecedented environmental peril, the impact of climate change is being experienced around the globe. This book answers the critical question, "What can we as ordinary citizens do about it?" While there are countless environmental books focusing on the causes of our current crisis, Advocating for the Environment is one of the first of its kind to focus on advocacy and policy-based solutions, arming general readers with the tools they need to take action and enact change. In Part I, author Susan Inches discusses storytelling, empathy, mindset, and how effective communication can help us to achieve specific goals and collaborate with others (even those with opposing views). Part II focuses on skills such as coalition building, media relations, the difference between tactics and strategy, communication strategy, and how to navigate political and bureaucratic hurdles that stand in the way of passing large-scale legislation. The author also includes case studies, research, and templates to scaffold learning. This book is the ideal guide for aspiring activists of all ages. Professors and teachers, students, legislators, environmental clubs, and church groups will also find useful ideas, strategies, and methods on every page.
