People-powered movements are transforming the world—and our work. Today, nearly everyone has tools for change in the palm of their hand, which is reshaping how organisations like Greenpeace think and operate. Amidst rapid change we've often found ourselves talking about mobilisation and people power without a shared sense, a language, for what we mean.
Why do words like "engagement" ring through our offices as often as smartphones? What is "people power," anyway? Most importantly, why should any of this matter to you and the people you work with?
The Mobilisation Cookbook is a guide to answer (almost) everything you wanted to know about "people-powered" campaigns at Greenpeace but were afraid to ask. Developed for Greenpeace staff, volunteers, and allies, this guide will help anyone cook up effective people-powered campaigns.
