Author(s): We Are What We Do
This is the paperback edition of "Teach Your Granny to Text and Other Ways to Change the World", the bestseller from global social change movement We Are What We Do. They aim to inspire people - in this case, children - to use their everyday actions to change the world. Their maxim is: small actions x lots of people = big change. It's not rocket science but it does work! The actions in the book - including one brand new knitting action - are fun and easy for children to do but add up to making a big difference. It gives children the responsibility for changing the world, one bit at a time.
We Are What We Do began life in the UK as a project of the charity Community Links, an innovative inner city charity running community-based projects in East London. The charity's founder, David Robinson, had the original idea after twenty-five years as a community worker in East London where he saw both the need for change and the power of people coming together to make it happen. David was joined by a small development group which included people from other industries; business, the voluntary sector, and government. Among this group was Eugenie Harvey, an Australian with a background in communications and marketing; shortly after meeting David she quite her job and joined as a volunteer to develop the project.
